Changing my lawyer to Flanzig and Flanzig

Switching My Lawyer to NewYorkbikelawyers.com

We are often asked: "I already have a lawyer, but I am not happy. Can I switch to your office?"

This is one of the most common questions we are asked. If you are not happy with your lawyer, you can discharge your lawyer at any time and retain our office to continue the case. Can I do this at any stage of the case? The answer is yes. You do not even have to provide a reason for the previous attorney's discharge. There are no additional fees incurred to you because of the change.

All lawyers who work on your case (even the one you fired) may be entitled to a fee. When the case is resolved, if appropriate, we will share our fee with your former attorney. This will not come out of the client's share, but will be worked out between the attorneys.

We also realize that firing your lawyer can be an awkward and uncomfortable process. Once you retain our office, we will handle all communication with your old lawyer and arrange for a transfer of the file. If your old lawyer is entitled to reimbursement of expenses, we will reimburse them for you, and recoup those expenses from the recovery once your case is resolved. All communication will be handled by us, and you never have to talk to him or her again.

Switching lawyers will also not delay your case. We are very familiar with taking over files from other attorneys. The process is normally seamless and easy. We will receive the file from the former attorney, notify the defendants attorneys, the Court, and any other necessary parties and proceed from where you left off.

Once we have the file, we will proceed to give your case the dedication and devotion it deserves.
