Good evening. If you feel that your attorney is not acting in your best interest and properly representing you, then you can ask him to withdraw from the case. There is nothing wrong with meeting and speaking with another attorney, to see if they want to take the case and before firing the other attorney, should find counsel who is willing and ready to step in and fight for you and recover for you what you deserve. If the new attorney feels they can step in and take over, that is at your discretion.

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.

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.
