You always have the right to stop working with a lawyer: it’s your legal right. How you can fire them, what happens to fees, and how to hire a new lawyer will be gone over in this article. But first, are you sure you should fire your lawyer?
Be certain that the Florida criminal attorney you intend to hire has a support staff that can adequately handle your case. Does the lawyer have, for example, a secretary, an investigator, a paralegal, and access to expert witnesses that may be needed in order to properly represent you at trial? If not, you may want to look for another donation lawyer.
How does the bidding work? I’ll give 2 examples to further clarify. The borrower in the previous paragraph started out requesting $6000 at 12.48% and lenders bid a minimum of $25 per bid. Also contained in the lender’s bid is the bottom line or minimum percentage rate they are willing to accept. So, if someone bid $50 with a bottom line rate of 8%, they are still in the running because as of this moment they will receive 8.5% interest. Someone else might have bid with a minimum acceptable interest rate of 11%. Right now they are out of the running because the group of lenders has moved the interest rate (8.5%) below their minimum acceptable rate (11%).
Are they an expert in divorce law? No? Move on to the next lawyer on your list. Waste no time or money letting a conjoint survivant LEARN how to handle a quick cheap divorce. Like I said, you’re looking for a divorce lawyer not a cheap lawyer who’ll handle your divorce.
When filing bankruptcy, your budget will be a key element. Therefore, you will want to make sure you have a full understanding of any and all fees your lawyer will be charging. Generally speaking, a bankruptcy lawyer charges a sizable fee for his or her services. You will be responsible for paying for the actual bankruptcy, which varies depending on what type you file for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy runs around $300. Then, your lawyer will charge approximately $1000 to $2000. If the fee is too high, you will want to consider another lawyer. But keep in mind that legal services are going to cost something, and it may be to your advantage to pay a bit more for an excellent lawyer, rather than paying much less for a bankruptcy lawyer with far less experience.
ASSUMING AND NOT CHECKING Related to falling for hype in lawyer advertising is assuming and not checking. Don’t believe the yellow page ads. All lawyers are not equal. You should investigate any lawyer or law firm before engaging them. Inquire about his/her reputation in the legal community. Check out what clients have to say about the lawyer and the law firm. ASSUMING PRE-PAID LEGAL IS THE WAY TO GO. Don’t assume that pre-paid legal is the way to go. Just because you have pre-paid legal available for use does not mean that you should use them. The best lawyers are seldom members of a pre-paid legal service panel. You certainly should not allow the pre-paid attorney to represent you without first investigating him/her.
Just because you meet with an attorney, without paying any fee, does not obligate you to sign up with or stay with that attorney. We hear so often in attorney advertising “There’s no obligation!” What this means is that you have a choice. If you like the attorney and are confident of their abilities, great! If you don’t, say “thank you for your time,” and move on to the next attorney. You are under no obligation to stay.
