The right lawyer can make all the difference to your case, and there can be many reasons you may wish to change lawyer. Reasons to change lawyers mid-case can include:
- If there is a lack of communication between you and your lawyer, such as unanswered calls or emails, not being able to speak to your lawyer directly or not receiving updates about important progress points in your case.
- You feel that your lawyer isn’t being completely truthful with you. This can include withholding important information or not passing on information you need promptly.
- Their fees seem too high. You could feel that you are being unfairly charged for the services you are receiving.
- You feel that your lawyer has acted in a way that is counter to your instructions. Even if they believe it is in your best interest, your lawyer should not override any instructions you give them and should implement what is asked of them.
- If your lawyer has acted unethically or breached their code of conduct, you may wish to change lawyers. This behaviour can include anything from providing advice to someone you are in a conflict with, to acting in a threatening manner.
- You may feel that the advice your lawyer is giving you is poor or that their response time is too slow. Your lawyer has an obligation to “provide professional services with reasonable care and skill” if they do not live up to this, you not only have the right to change lawyers but you may even be entitled to a professional negligence claim against them. This can include things such as giving you incorrect legal advice, engaging in fraud, or missing time limits during your case.
The process for changing lawyers is relatively simple and is a process LHD lawyers are well versed in.
The process includes:
Considering your reason for leaving: The first step in the process of moving to LHD Lawyers is to consider your reason for leaving your current law firm. Take some time to reflect on why you are seeking a change and evaluate your specific needs and expectations from a new firm.
Investigating other law firms: Once you have identified the need to move, it’s essential to research and investigate other law firms in the area. Look for firms that align with your legal needs and have a reputation for excellence, experience, and a track record of successful cases.
Contact LHD for a free case assessment: When you have narrowed down your choices, reach out to LHD Lawyers to schedule a free case assessment. This initial consultation provides an opportunity to discuss your legal situation and evaluate whether LHD Lawyers is the right fit for your needs.

There are a couple of situations where transferring your personal injury claim to another lawyer may be more challenging:
Proceedings are Imminent: If your personal injury claim has reached an advanced stage where legal proceedings, such as court hearings or trials, are imminent, it may be more difficult to transfer your case smoothly. This is because transferring a case at such a late stage can disrupt the continuity and preparation of the proceedings. The new lawyer would require sufficient time to review the case, familiarize themselves with the evidence, and prepare a strategy, which may not be feasible if the proceedings are imminent.
Close to Settlement of Case: If you are close to reaching a settlement in your personal injury case, it can also complicate the process of transferring your claim. Settlement negotiations involve ongoing communication and negotiation between parties, including your current lawyer and the opposing party. Transferring the case at this stage may disrupt the negotiation process and potentially delay the resolution.
In both scenarios, it’s important to weigh the potential benefits and drawbacks of transferring your case. Consider consulting with both your current lawyer and the potential new lawyer to discuss the specifics of your situation.
