What to Know Before (and After) Firing Your Lawyer in Georgia

Terminating the services of a lawyer in Georgia is easy. You just send a short email, letter, fax, even a text stating that you no longer wish his or her services and ask that he or she send you your complete file.

Saving A Few Bucks on Car Insurance Could Really Cost You And Your Family
