Workers' Compensation
I am presently represented by an attorney, but I am dissatisfied with what she has done on my case. Am I allowed to change attorneys? If so, do I have to pay both attorneys once my case is settled?

You are entitled to change attorneys as often as you choose. The attorney's fee in workers' compensation cases can never exceed 15% of your recovery. The fee must be approved by a judge before it is paid out. Therefore, let us assume that you had two attorney's represent you in your case, the attorney's would have to divide the attorney's fee based on how much work they have done on your case. However, in no event can they claim more than 15% of your recovery.
