Hello.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. At this point, there is enough time before your trial to find a new lawyer since it is over a month away. I would suggest finding a new attorney before discharging the other one, however. You don't want to get stuck without a lawyer if you fire your current before you locate another one...any lawyer is typically better than no lawyer, particularly if you are going to trial. All you really have to do is search for a new criminal lawyer. If you need help, you can use a directory like www.martindale.com to find attorneys who specialize in criminal law in your area. The new lawyer should also be able to review the retainer agreement that you signed with the current lawyer to find out what you need to do to terminate their services. Usually all you have to do is tell them they are fired and they have to turn over your file to the new lawyer, but as I said, it is definitely a good idea to line up a new lawyer first.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
