Need to Change Lawyers?

Why Clients Fire Their Attorneys
One of the top complaints about (bad) lawyers is that they are not responsive. It is frustrating when your phone calls or emails are not returned for days or weeks, especially when your life is upside down because of a serious injury in the family.

If you want to switch lawyers, it is as simple as filing a consent to change attorney form with the court and then sending a stop work letter to the attorney who was representing you. Our law firm will coordinate with them to take over your case. Your legal fee will not increase -- when your case settles, some of the proceeds may go to your original lawyer — but that comes out of the attorney fees (our share, not your share).

Is it malpractice?
In the worst-case scenario, your prior lawyer may have permanently harmed your case due to his or her incompetence or neglect. If you have suffered financial loss because of your former attorney's misconduct, you may have grounds to pursue a legal malpractice lawsuit against that lawyer. Sakkas Cahn & Weiss LLP represents plaintiffs in lawyer malpractice cases.
