Can you fire your attorney? The simple answer is yes. You can fire your lawyer, however, you cannot fire them without good cause. To fire your lawyer you must be able to prove, in writing, that your lawyer is not doing what they are supposed to be doing in your case.
Most lawyers, particularly in personal injury cases, are hired on what is known as a contingency fee basis. This means that they will be paid a percentage of whatever money you recover in your case. If you fire your lawyer without good cause they may still be able to recover their fee, in which case you may end up paying two lawyers out of your settlement. Watch this video to understand more about what defines “good cause”. #BrianBeckcom #VBAttorneys
