How to Change Attorneys in Las Vegas, Nevada
Having Trouble With Your Attorney?
There are a lot of reasons clients are upset with their attorneys.
Below are just a few reasons why people want to change attorneys:
- Attorney doesn't call you back
- There is no progress on a case
- Nobody is working on a case
- You never get to speak to the attorney; only paralegal
- You can't communicate with an attorney; no chemistry
Although there is a multitude of reasons why a person would want to switch attorneys there is only one simple way to do it: Simply hire another attorney.
When you tell your new attorney that you had an old attorney working on the same case, that new attorney will file a Substitution of Attorney with the Court.
What if a lawsuit hasn’t been filed yet? No problem. Your new attorney will send a letter to the old attorney telling him that you have hired another lawyer.
How To Stop Your Old Lawyer From Calling You
Actually, absent special circumstances, your old attorney should never try to contact you after they have learned that you have a new attorney.
If they do try to contact you tell your new attorney right away.
Can I Get A Refund From My Old Attorney?
Changing attorneys is a lot easier than getting an attorney to give you a refund.
The problem is that no attorney is allowed to accept your payment based on the promise of a result.
In other words, if you hired an attorney to acquire some land, that attorney cannot take your money on the promise that they will get you that land.
This means that your payment is for the attorney to do the work only.
Many attorney-client relationships go sour because the client expects a result.
It is always important that you and your attorney are on the same page when it comes to expectations.
