Can I change my solicitor part way through a claim?
The simple answer is yes, you can.
It is important that your solicitor has the relevant experience and expertise to deal with your claim, and that you feel confident they are working in your best interests at all times.
When finding yourself in need of legal advice, you quite rightly expect an excellent service from your solicitor throughout your case.
Can I switch to another solicitor?
If at any stage you feel that your current solicitor may not have the right expertise to deal with your claim, or is not dealing with your claim in a way which your are happy with, you can switch firms to find a solicitor who you have greater confidence in.
