Can I Fire My Personal Injury Lawyer? A Video Discussion

Here is a recent video I uploaded to YouTube discussing the practical consequences of firing your personal injury claims lawyer in order to hire a new one:

When potential clients approach me telling me they are unhappy with their lawyer and want to fire him/her, my initial advice usually catches them off guard.  My first response is while I would welcome the business they should try to work it out with their current lawyer.
Why would I give potential clients this advice and risk losing their business?  The answer is simple, hiring a second lawyer means paying a second lawyer.  Sometimes the price of hiring a second lawyer to finish one job is not worth it and potential clients are entitled to know the costs of their intended actions.
You can click here to read an article I authored on this subject several months ago.  I hope this video and article are of assistance to people not only considering firing their contingency-based lawyer but useful for people who are looking to hire a contingency based lawyer in the first place.
