Can I fire my personal injury attorney?

If you are not satisfied with the services you are getting from your attorney, you have the right to fire your attorney and hire one that you believe will better represent your interests. You can discharge your attorney at any time and for any reason.

Attorneys are responsible for managing sensitive matters and resolving contentious disputes. This relationship requires a client to place a great deal of trust in his or her attorney. If that trust is broken for any reason, the relationship suffers. The client comes to feel that his or her interests are no longer being adequately represented.

Sometimes, it is possible for clients and attorneys to resolve the problem by talking it out and creating clear expectations. Unfortunately, if the trust is too broken or if the attorney and client have very different views on a subject, the relationship may not be salvageable. In such cases, it is time to start looking for a new lawyer.

If you are unable to resolve a dissatisfaction with your current attorney, call Joyce & Reyes for a free consultation.
