A: You could change lawyers. Before doing so, it could be worth your time to sit down with your current lawyer for fifteen minutes to review your file and find out why the settlement offer is not meeting your expectations. If there are issues in the case that stand in the way of a higher settlement figure, a new lawyer might not necessarily be able to change those things. Good luck
