I have a lawsuit in Florida for my auto injury case that has not gone to trial yet. Can I fire my attorney if the lawsuit was filed by them?

You can always fire your lawyer. If you fire him or her without cause, then your lawyer will have a lien for the value of time spent on the case. If he fires you, then your lawyer has no lien. What is or is not "cause" can be a complicated issue. Generally, it is more difficult to find a new lawyer if your fired lawyer has a fee lien.
