Texas divorce FAQ: Can I change lawyers?
Posted By O'Neil Wysocki
You have an absolute right to have the lawyer of your choice represent you. If you become dissatisfied with your lawyer, you can fire that lawyer and hire another one. Keep in mind that the new lawyer may spend time, and therefore charge you money, for getting up to speed on your case. And, your contractual obligations to pay your prior lawyer for time spent on your case are not relieved just because you change lawyers.
