Can I change attorneys in the middle of my Florida divorce case?

That is always an interesting question to ask an attorney, but having an attorney is not unlike having a therapist, you or a doctor. You are not going to feel that you’re going to get your best result unless you trust the professional who’s dealing with you.

If in fact you have lost the trust of your attorney, you don’t trust him or her anymore, then by all means you need to consider finding someone you do. However, at the same time, you have to look at what is going on in your case at the time you want to make that decision. If you have a major hearing that is going to occur in the next day or two, obviously you cannot change horses right at that point in time, so look carefully at what’s going on in your case. Think about the relationship you have with your attorney, how close are you to the finishing of your case, and how much is it going to cost you, and can you afford it if you go to another attorney.

These are all the factors you need to consider when you’re thinking about finding a new attorney, and then at the same time, even if you think you have found the attorney that you want, do not fire your current attorney until you have retained the services of a new attorney. You do not want to be caught in the middle of some legal firefight with no one representing.
