When you disengage with a client prior to the completion of a case, are you requiring that they sign a release of records or are you just sending a kiss off letter?

Send them a kiss off letter and send it certified return receipt mail. Its not always possible to get a client that is transferring his files to sign off on a release.

Make sure that you state in the letter to the client that the attorney client relationship is ending as of a certain date and that if the client desire to retain your services in the future, that a new engagement letter will need to be executed. Also, when the client picks up his files, make sure that she signs a form that s/he has all their files and retained the signed copy for your records.
