Customer Question
I want a substitute of...
I want a substitute of council for a custody issue, question is my atty will not respond to motion for me from opposing council to have a psych eval and court appointed adviser as I am disputing some of my atty's charges. He wants me to pay full balance and I really just want to turn him in to the bar and get a more experienced atty that wants to resolve the case and not in just for a pay check. What are my rights to seek a substitute of council when you have an atty that isn't doing their job?

You can terminate your lawyer by letter at any time and copy the court.You can proceed here pro se or hire another one.Make sure you demand copies of your files so you can forward them to new lawyer.This should not be a problem.You can terminate the lawyer at any time in writing here in Arizona and he withdraws.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

My atty wont give me all the files until I pay him for his last weeks worth of work. In addition, he has been misleading me about my custody case and responding very poorly to motions, its obvious to me he is dragging the case out to make money and not giving the judge evidence and facts needed to dismiss case. He has one vision and it is trial. How do I let the judge know my atty is incompetent and not doing his job and filing timely? i already have to pay some of me's legal fees from him not responding to motions on time.

You can terminate the lawyer here and file grievance if you have too here.You have rights to tell the judge you are pro se.

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.
