Client Questions

In New York, you have a right to switch lawyers at any time that you choose. If you're not happy with your existing or present lawyer for any reason whatsoever, you just need to fill out a form called a consent to change attorney form and your file is then transferred to the new law firm. It's very difficult to predict which cases will proceed to trial or which cases will be settled. Although the majority of all cases are settled, a lawyer has no way to know in advance which cases will settle or go to verdict. It's therefore very important to prepare every case as if it will proceed to verdict and then when the insurance companies and defense lawyers see that you're prepared for trial, then they're in a position to discuss a reasonable settlement for your case.
