Can you fire your attorney?


Answer by  gummie (738)

A person can do anything they want to do. You have to deal with the consequences, though. If you believe your lawyer is not adequately representing you, you have every legal right to terminate the relationship.

You can fire an attorney at any time. You will still owe him money for the work that he has done for you, however. If you paid a retainer, he can keep the amount for the fees that he has earned, but must refund the rest.

I would say yes to that question if i thought my attorney was not working for me i would get another attorney. The only drawback would be that you would have to pay any fees incurred.

Of course you can. But, it helps to have another attorney waiting in the wings. Ask for your paperwork and be sure that the attorney is paid off in full and on time.

You can fire any one you hire. Attorney can be fired if they are not representing you properly. You, however, can't fire a state/ county appointed attorney, only someone you yourself hire.

Yes you can definitely fire your attorney. If you have genuine reasons to or maybe not satisfied with his/her work you can hire a new attorney. Why should you keep some attorney if you are not happy with the work.
