FAQ: Can you fire a personal injury attorney?

Sometimes a lawyer and a client are not a good fit for a variety of reasons. If that is the case, a client may always request their file back to pursue an attorney that is a better fit. In that case, the attorney and client can part ways. You should read your contract carefully. Most contingency contracts have a “Lien” clause, which means that a lawyer MAY assert a lien on the case for services rendered.
