Firing Your Lawyer

You have the right to fire your lawyer if you decide you have chosen the wrong one. You have the right to do this at any time—whether or not your bill is fully paid. It is best to do this in writing. If you fax or email your letter, follow up with an original copy and keep one copy for yourself. No need to say more than, "I no longer wish you to represent me."
