Motion To Withdraw / Order To Withdraw Example


What is included in the product download?

The product download is simply a redacted PDF motion to withdraw that was filed by a lawyer in 2022 in Dallas County.  The Court agreed with the motion and ordered the withdraw so this product is an example of one format and approach that worked successfully for a lawyer to get off of a case.

What Is a Motion To Withdrawal?

A Motion to Withdrawal filed by a lawyer is simply a document used to remove the lawyer from legal obligations on the lawsuit.  Once the motion is filed, the court will hold a hearing regarding the Motion and if the judge grants the motion, the lawyer will then be off of the case.

What do you do if your lawyer files a Motion to Withdraw?

Most likely, the court will allow your attorney to withdrawal from your case once they have filed a motion to do so.  It is best to reach out to your attorney directly and see if can agree to continue the case together.  Most often withdrawal motions are filed due to a failure to pay legal fees.  But, it is often best to keep the lawyer you have if at all possible.  If you cannot keep the lawyer, you do not need to do anything in order for the lawyer to withdrawal, but it is usually best to sign an agreed order allowing them off the case since otherwise the lawyer likely has contractual rights to sue you for the added fees it could take to get off your case without your cooperation.

Keep in mind that lawyers are like tools.  If you have to switch, it is not the end of the world.  Find one that fits the job. Still, changing lawyers too many times on a case can be a red flag so ideally change lawyers 0 or just once during the case, and then stick with the lawyer you get.
