How To Avoid This Issue & "Part As Friends"

The Attorney & Client relationship sometimes just does not work out.

Time and expense are saved by agreeing to mutually sign an order releasing the lawyer.

Otherwise the lawyer will still be able to get off the case, but likely with more time and energy wasted by the client who is stressed out as it is.

Remember that once a lawyer has filed a pleading with their name on it in your case, they cannot get off the case without:

  • Filing a Motion to Withdrawal listing all deadlines in the case;
  • Serving the Motion to Withdrawal on all parties;
  • Coordinating and Setting a hearing on the Motion To Withdrawal;
  • Attending the hearing and getting the Judge to Sign the Order withdrawaling the attorney;
  • Sometimes, transferring the file to the client for case continuation.
