Hello again, Aida.The new attorney is not required to file a new complaint, they can typically pick up where the former attorney left off after the new attorney files an "entry of appearance" indicating to the court that they are now representing you.The new attorney may need additional time to become familiar with the case and request that the court grant a continuance of any hearings that are scheduled in the near future. Otherwise, they would typically proceed from the point the former attorney/firm left off.
