Changing Attorneys

I am currently represented by an attorney on a contingency basis on an employment law case; however, I want to use a different attorney. This subject is not addressed in the signed agreement. Can I advise the first attorney that I want to terminate his services and request a release?

termination of attorney

Yes, you may terminate your attorney. However, you may be bound by the fee agreement. Many attorneys will go ahead and give you a release, depending on how much work they have done on the case. Sometimes the current attorney can work out a referral fee arrangement with your new attorney. You need to address these issues with your current attorney.
