Yes, you can hire a lawyer to send a legal notice and another lawyer for representing your legal matter. If you have a cheque bounce case where drawer send a cheque of payment, fee, salary, etc., to the drawee due to insufficient amount in the account. You can first send a legal notice to the defaulter within 15 days of receiving the cheque return memo. The legal notice should be drafted by a good cheque bounce lawyer in India with all the details of the matter.

Ater serving the legal notice, if the defaulter makes the payment with 15 days, the case ends right there. But, if the defaulter fails to do so then you can file a case against the defaulter through same lawyer or another lawyer. As per our Indian laws a person has the right to change a lawyer at any point of his legal matter.
