In California and Arizona, there are regulations in place to ensure that clients have the right to switch personal injury attorneys when necessary. However, it is essential to understand the process and consider various factors before switching attorneys. 

Review Your Contract  

The contract you have with your attorney will let you know of any fees you may need to cover if you decide to end the relationship. Being aware of these financial obligations is essential to determine whether switching is financially in your best interest. The contract may contain instruction about how to formally end the attorney-client relationship, ensuring you follow the proper steps. 

Considerations Before Switching Attorneys 

  • Timing

    Before switching attorneys, consider the statute of limitations on your case. Delays in between the transition of attorneys may put you at risk of missing crucial deadlines.  

  • Get a second opinion

    Consider obtaining a free consultation from a different firm. This conversation can help you gain a better perspective on whether switching attorneys is beneficial. Exploring your options will give you the confidence to make an informed decision.

  • Review your case

    Discuss your doubts and concerns with your attorney. Perhaps a transparent conversation is all you need to fix any issues you may be having pertaining to your case.  

Tips to Find the Best Attorney

  • Check reviews

    Client testimonials and online ratings provide valuable insights into an attorney’s reputation, reliability, and success rate.  

  • Check their case results

    Reviewing an attorney’s track record can give you insight on whether they can handle a case like yours.  

  • Review their expertise

    Before you decide on an attorney, make sure they specialize in the type of representation you need. A specialized attorney brings expertise and experience crucial for achieving the best possible outcome in your case.
