How to Fire Your Attorney

Scott Monge

If you are having issues working with your attorney where there is a breakdown in communication, you may be wondering what your next move should be. Before you take any drastic actions, I recommend giving it your best effort to resolve the problem at hand by meeting with your attorney to see if you can resolve matters. I am not saying you should fire your attorney, however, if you are still unsatisfied after making a good faithful effort to address the issue, here is what our law says:

Since each case belongs to the client, you have the right to work with a counsel of your choosing. Communication is the most important factor in an effective client-attorney relationship. If you are not receiving timely responses and answers to your legal questions, you can assess your options.

After all, not knowing what is going on with your case can be one of the most frustrating experiences. To maintain your composure and ability to think rationally, a case must move forward within a reasonable amount of time. Furthermore, your attorney should be doing everything in his or her power to ensure that this case is moving forward in the right direction. If deadlines are missed, or your case is not moving forward, it can be devastating for your case.

If you’ve gotten to the point where you cannot continue to waste precious time and resources, you have the choice to end the client-attorney relationship. The way to do this is to send your attorney something in writing indicating you no longer need your attorney’s services and to request a copy of your file. Once you have your file in hand, you will be able to see what has been done on your case and find a new attorney to handle your case.

The quicker things are done, the quicker you can move your case closer to resolution.
