Q: After I fired my lawyer and he had an settlement amount, how can I settle for the money if I fired him? Who do I talk to
I fired my lawyer because he wasn’t fighting for me and made me stop treating while I was still hurting. But I can’t work , I’m in school with no car and need transportation and money. What can I do? I already have a new lawyer looking into my case.
A: Since you have stated that you have already fired your lawyer and you already have sought a new lawyer, I will reply---you are on the right track in seeking to hire another lawyer to assume representation of you----most attorneys who represent injured people will provide a free initial consultation so I would contact a few accident/injury lawyers in your area, set up a consultation and bring your file to the consultation and after you have consulted with a few lawyers, then hire the one with whom you are most comfortable. Good luck.
