Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response.
I am sorry to hear you were treated so poorly by an attorney. Our profession really does not need internal help in giving us a bad name. But not to worry, we are not all terrible.
You can absolutely hire another attorney. Attorneys are simply authorized representatives, we have no unauthorized party and our services can be cancelled at any time without penalty to the client. In addition, if she filed any motion without your consent and you wish to withdraw it, you can attempt to have the motion withdrawn.
Attorneys have no power to force you to use their services, our contracts can be terminated by the client at any time without penalty, and we cannot charge any type of cancellation fee.
Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your question. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, please ask! There is no additional fee. If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as Good or Excellent (i.e., 4 or 5 stars)(hopefully Excellent/5 stars!). Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you today. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!
She did file it as though you are representing yourself.
Nothing you signed binds you to using her or hiring another attorney to represent you.
You can have the new attorney assist you in withdrawing the motion and refiling. You may also want to contact the court clerk in the mean time and let them know that you did not authorize the filing of the motion.
