That would depend on why the attorney quit. The most common reason is where the client refuses to listen to counsel, and as a result, it becomes increasingly difficult for the attorney to prosecute the clients case. Thus, the attorney withdraws as counsel of record.
That would be one of a few scenarios where an attorney may recover his/her fee. Fees are sometimes negotiated between attorneys, and other times assigned by the court.
Each attorney receives attorney fees based on how long they had your case for However. the total attorney fees remain the same. In worker's compensation field , the attorney fees rate is generally 15%. Feel free to call us at 213.388.7070 for a free consultation.
