There are various events that can cause a person to change the lawyer who is handling their case. Therefore, in this article, we are going to explore some of the events that may lead an individual to change the lawyer who is handling his or her case.
The attorney that an individual has hired to handle his or her case may fail to relay important information about the case to them. It is very important for a person who is currently faced with a court case to always be on the know of every development that happens in the case. The communication responsibility usually lays on the shoulder of the lawyer who has been hired by that particular person to handle everything that pertains to the case. Some of the factors that the lawyer needs to keep his or her client on the know include a change in the times of the court proceedings, deadlines that have been placed to submit critical evidence for the case, a change in the side of the opponent. Having this information it will help the client and the lawyer to channel a new way of doing things to counter any opposition during the case. Therefore, when the client finds out that the lawyer has not been communicating of the major developments that have been happening during the case, he or she can consider hiring a different lawyer because poor communication during the case can put the client in a very bad place to defend themselves in the court. If the person takes care of the incompetent lawyer and hires one that is able to communicate he or she will be able to avoid many uncertainties that could have come up because of lack of information.
The attorney that is currently handling the case for a particular person may refer them to another attorney this is another event that can cause attorneys to switch in the case. This can happen in the event that there are major developments about the case and the lawyer that is currently handling the case does not have the needed expertise to continue representing the client. It is good practice for the lawyer to hand over their client to another lawyer who is more knowledgeable in that area of law rather than having to continue by themselves knowing that they may not be able to deliver. Therefore, when such things happen the client should understand that things are not the same and should, therefore, maintain a positive attitude even when referred to another lawyer even though terms of the agreement may change.
