Can I fire my lawyer and get my money back?
That means whether you fire your attorney, or your attorney quits, you may be entitled to a refund for any paid-for services not yet rendered. However, you almost certainly won’t get a refund on work the lawyer has already performed, regardless of how dissatisfied you may be with the outcome or progress of your case.
Is it better to go to trial or settle?
Pros of settling your case include: The parties control the outcome. Your claim will be resolved a lot sooner than if your case proceeds to trial. Attorney fees and other costs are significantly reduced by avoiding a trial. Settlements are significantly less stressful than going to trial.
Can your lawyer lie for you?
The American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct states that a lawyer “shall not knowingly make a false statement of material fact.” In other words, lawyers aren’t supposed to lie–and they can be disciplined or even disbarred for doing so.
