How Do I Fire my Hutchinson, Kansas City or Dodge City Attorney?

A good and trusting attorney-client relationship is important. However, sometimes a client feels their case is not getting the attention it deserves. When this happens, they may question if their attorney is right for their situation. If you’ve found yourself in this position, here are a few things you need to consider.

  1. He’s not answering my calls – It’s important to remember that your case most likely isn’t the only one your attorney is working on at the present time. Despite this, you have the right to stay updated on the status of your case. If you can’t reach your attorney, you can always ask to speak to a paralegal about your case. If lack of contact from your attorney continues, it’s important to first voice your concerns about the lack of communication.
  1. Another attorney told me to fire my current Wichita lawyer – Not only is this potentially unethical advice from the attorney advising you to fire your current lawyer, but it could be bad advice. In discussing your case with others, including other attorney’s, the information you tell them might not be accurate. Certain legal issues and ramifications for your case get missed in conversation, leading to bad advice from others. Hiring a “new” attorney could lead to him or her refusing your case after finding this information out.
  1. Finishing my case is taking too long – Even if your case seems simple to you, most personal injury cases take time. If you think your attorney isn’t pushing hard enough to close your case, instead of assuming they aren’t working hard, ask why the case is taking longer than expected. Having an honest conversation with your attorney not only leads to building a trustworthy relationship, but can also help you to the process of a lawsuit. You may find it’s much more complicated than you originally thought.

If you still believe it’s in your best interest to fire your attorney, it is your right to do so. However, make sure you do so in a professional manner. A written notice stating any misconduct or reasoning for termination should be included. If you are professional and courteous, you will find that your attorney will be as well. A good attorney will want the best for you and your case, no matter what.
