How to Change Your Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer

Comments (0)

Does your lawyer ignore your phone calls? Do you feel he or she is not handling your case properly? Do you want to change your Long Island accident lawyer? Well, you can...

That’s right. You can. With no additional costs or hassles. If you are unhappy with your lawyer, you are far from alone. We get a lot of phone calls from people who are not happy with their lawyers and want to find out about getting a new attorney. The most common complaint—that their lawyer does not return their phone calls.

That’s a serious complaint, because communication is an important part of the lawyer−client relationship.

If you are not happy with your lawyer for any reason, you have the right to change lawyers at any time and you will not be charged any additional fees! In fact, the process is very easy.

  • You are entitled to change lawyers whenever you want, and it shouldn't cost you any additional money.
  • You do not need to fire your lawyer. Your new lawyer will send your old lawyer a letter informing him or her that you have a new lawyer. It is then up to the new lawyers to work out how the fee you initially agreed to will be split between the two lawyers. If they can’t work it out, a court will decide. You do not need to be involved and you will not be charged anything above your initial contract with your first lawyer.
  • There should not be any delay with your case when you change lawyers. If both lawyers are civil and handle this properly, your old lawyer should sent the file to the new lawyer, who will start representing you immediately.
