It happens; you hire a lawyer to represent you and then along the way, you realize that you don’t quite agree with his opinions. What can you do? Is there a way to get out of such a scenario or must you play it out to the end?
You certainly don’t have to keep using a lawyer whom you feel is not doing right by you. You can get rid of them and replace them with another one. What matters is how you get rid of them with minimum acrimony and loss of fees that you may already have paid.
First, you should talk with the lawyer about your concerns. Tell them what you feel that they are doing wrong and ask them if they can change. Some will, some won’t and some will explain to you why they are doing what they are doing. Be careful here; if what your lawyer is doing is unethical, you should distance yourself because it could land you both in prison.
If, after they explain you are still not sure, it is time to seek a second legal opinion. You don’t have to hire another lawyer; find free legal services and explain the situation to them, asking them what your next steps should be.
If you had paid a retainer to the lawyer, they should deduct their fees for work already done and give you back the balance.
