Can you fire a NJ Personal Injury Lawyer?
Yes, you can fire a personal injury lawyer.
Most personal injury lawyers represent an injured party on a contingency fee basis. Contingent fee basis means that an attorney will only be compensated upon the successful completion of the personal injury case.
If you are not happy with your personal injury lawyer, you have the legal right to fire him/her and seek new representation. However, firing your lawyer should be a decision of last resort.
If you are dissatisfied with the services of your personal injury lawyer, do not automatically “fire” him or her. First, speak to your lawyer and voice your concerns. Sometimes there is a break down in communication that can be resolved with a simple heart to heart conversation. Keep in mind that the lawyer that represents you in the very beginning of your case is always preferred and should get every option to resolve any differences.
The lawyers at Beninato and Matrafajlo Attorneys at Law, LLC urge you to make all reasonable efforts to resolve your differences with your lawyer. However, if your attempts fail, give us a call at 908-248-4404 to discuss your options. As always, all consultations are free.
