What if an attorney is not acting in my best interest?

By Steven F. Stuhlbarg, Lawyer Referral Service Panelist

The attorney-client relationship works best when there is a high level of trust between the parties.  If you have concerns about your attorney, talk with him or her openly about your concerns.  Ask questions.  As in any relationship, communication is the key to improving the relationship.

Though it may not be in your best interest to do so, one option you always have is to fire your attorney.  Your right to fire your attorney is absolute, with or without cause, and regardless of whether you owe your attorney any money.
