Withdraw of counsel
I am in the middle of a custody case approx. 1yr 1/2 with an x. My lawyer just sent me a letter of withdraw of counsel. I WAS SHOCKED !!!! I thought for the last two years we have had a great relationship. I finally rec'd a phone call from her, (after emails and messages to her) stated on my voice mail that she was appauled at the fact I put her on the spot when I put her on speaker phone so my parents can hear her anwers to my questions. I asked her twice if it was ok to put her on speaker phone as I have numerous times in the past. I have not signed any agreement for her to be dismissed. I just want to know why a firm is allowed to drop a client just because that got affended, I did not nor did my parents want to affend any one exspecailly my lawyer. Is this something that is excepted, just withdraw with no warning or ligit excuse. Oh by the way she is paid in full and up to date with all court hearing and etc...I just think it is not a good practice for any lawyer to take advantage of a single mother just trying to get her daughter back into my life. Please advise.
