Legal Question

Asked on: 6/18/13, 12:18 am

I retained a criminal attorney 2 months ago. I paid the agreed retainer fee by check. For 2 months, he updated me with details from the DAís office. Less than 1 month before the actual trial date, he has informed me that he will no longer work my case. He decided to quit after he informed me of some legal misconduct regarding my case. When I asked him to report the conduct, he decided to quit. He says he doesnít want anything to do with my case and he will not be reporting the misconduct because legally he does not have to. He says he does not have to officially withdraw from my case, because itís my tough luck that he never filed a notice of appearance. What can I do at this late date?
