    Answered . You have an absolute right to choose any attorney you wish. That said, you need to remember that the attorney who worked on your matter for 6 1/2 years is going to have a significant lien on the file. It may be difficult for you to find a qualified attorney who is willing to work for half-price, or less. Before you do anything, you should meet with the new attorney, face-to-face and see how confident you feel. Good luck.

So you may be well represented even if you stay with the young lawyer. As someone else suggested, go in and sit down and talk to the son and see if you will be comfortable with him. There is a chance too that the son has done most of the work on the case in recent years anyway, and you just did not know it.
