The original lawyer with whom I had conferred and signed paperwork left to start his own firm. I stayed with the original firm, but am not pleased with their work (the lawyers are extremely impersonal). What would I lose by going under contract with the first lawyer at his new firm, assuming he will still handle it for the same %? Am I correct in assuming that I will not pay twice and they will split the fee % originally agreed upon under the principle of quantum meruit?So if I terminate this firm they will still be paid on a contingent basis, correct? I could not end up paying them hourly and have it come out to more than the % agreed upon?
