Unfortunately, sometimes the attorney/client relationship can break down for a number of reasons. If you are unhappy with your slip and fall lawyer, you can change lawyers at anytime, and you don’t even need a reason.
Whether it be lack of communication, failure of the attorney to move the case forward, or lack of willingness to fight for what is fair with the insurance company, a client may need to take his file to another attorney’s office for handling. You are not penalized at all for making the change.
If you need to change slip and fall lawyers, you have that right and your attorney cannot demand any fees before giving you your file. Best of luck with your case, and call me right now at 617 338 7400 for a free consultation!
