Exit an Agreement with a Divorce Lawyer

| Dec 15, 2016 | Uncategorized

Q: My divorce is final for months but my lawyer keeps contacting me (and charging me every time) for instance asking for another retainer to do a 401 investigation. Also being charged for things that they said I wouldn’t be charged for.  Is sending an email to exit our agreement enough?

A: David’s Answer: If you wish to discharge your attorney, you must sign a “Consent to Change Attorney” form – which is usually drafted by the Attorney. If you are disputing fees, you can file a request for fee arbitration.
