If your attorney wants you to find other counsel, he or she should be pleased to assit you in completing a substitution of attorney. It's really pretty easy. Can you actually go pro per or do you need legal representation. If you need legal representation have your new attorney fill it out for you. If you're going pro per, then have your current attorney do it.

If you'd like my firm to represent you in this matter call me.
