We would advise that if you have an issue with your current solicitor that you talk to them first – they may be able to resolve it. However, if this isn’t possible, then you may consider changing your solicitor. Moving from one solicitor to another is usually a smooth and stress free process.
The first thing you should do is search for another suitable solicitor. You should find someone who specialises in the particular area of law that you need and contact them for an initial conversation. During your first discussion with your potential new solicitor you should make it clear to them that you are thinking of moving away from your current solicitor.
When you tell your new solicitor you would like to move to them they will write a letter to your previous solicitor, explaining to them that they will be taking over your case, and will request your case file. You do not need to speak to your previous solicitor to tell them you wish to use another solicitor if you don’t want to, as this will all be done for you.
Usually, you won’t have to pay anything to your previous solicitor if you decide to switch. Any outstanding fees can be settled at the conclusion of your case.
If you feel that your previous solicitor has been negligent and you have suffered any losses because of this then it is important to get independent legal advice, as you could have a claim against them.
