Legal Question: Changing Attorneys in a DUI Case

I am not happy with the counsel I’ve chosen to handle my dui case. My trial date is next month. What are the odds of finding an attorney willing to take on my case?

You have the absolute right to be represented by the attorney of your choosing. Let your current attorney know that you’re not happy, and that you’re planning on changing counsel. This doesn’t have to be acrimonious. Sometimes attorney/client relationships just don’t have good chemistry, but you have a lot at stake and need to find someone that you are satisfied working with.

Two qualified professionals should make the transition between attorneys relatively seamless. Its as simple as filing a notice of withdrawal and substitution with the court.
