Default reg G28 to change the lawyer or Self representaion for I485

I filed I-485 for me and my wife in Aug'07. I have plan to join client and would like to change the lawyer since he is a company lawyer or represent myself for my wife and my I485. If I need to self represent what are the steps? Do I have to file G28 by selecting the option other for my and send covering letter? Will it trigger any RFE? Please advice me.

You don't file a G-28 unless you DO have a lawyer representing you. You just need to write to CIS advising them that the former lawyer no longer represents you, and ask CIS to send any correspondence directly to you, not the lawyer. It might take a long time for CIS to make the change, but in the meantime, the other lawyer should send you anything he gets on the case.
