If you and your lawyer have completely failed to see eye to eye, you can fire him. It is not often that you will hear that someone has fired their lawyer but it does happen. In most cases, it will be because a client feels that they are moving too slowly on their matter or that they are not attentive enough.
Many people who have fired their lawyers will tell you that it was because they were not returning calls. This is a big problem with many lawyers. They don’t have the necessary resources to run an office and be in court at the same time.
If you get to the point where you feel you want to fire your lawyer, you might think of giving him one last chance; if there is any way you can get him to listen to you for a minute, let him know that you are thinking that another lawyer can do it better. Check what happens in the next few days; if he still not responding, you can go ahead and fire him.
You should be aware that firing your lawyer is likely to attract some fees if he has started working on your case. He will bill you for costs to date which he expects you to clear right away. The temptation may be to fight him, but the best thing to do is to pay him and find a more competent lawyer.
