Can you change Solicitors if you are receiving legal aid?

Resolved Question:

Can you change Solicitors if you are receiving legal aid? And can you change to paying for a Solicitor even though you initially started with legal aid? This is in Scotland.

Yes you can. Your new solicitor can apply to the legal aid board to have the legal aid certificate transferred over. Happy to discuss further. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
