LEO: Withdrawal from Employment - Attorney LE Op. 514
Withdrawal from Employment/Attorney of Record.
May 2, 1983
When the Court denies permission for the attorney's withdrawal, the
attorney of record in a criminal case may not withdraw from employment
even when the attorney's client has specifically and unequivocally
requested that the attorney terminate his representation of the client.
