My lawyer and I don't agree on strategy. Nor do we agree on how to present my case to the jury. Why is he trying to withdraw from my case?

 

A: Although I can't answer specifically why your lawyer wants to withdraw, I can tell you that if you cannot get along with your lawyer, and you disagree with his (or her) strategy on how to present your case at trial, you have a significant problem. It then becomes impossible for your attorney to represent you properly, and if you and your attorney are not on the same page, he will likely withdraw as your attorney. Before he can actually withdraw, he must ask the Court for permission to do so. You will be given an opportunity to agree to this, or object to this request. In all likelihood, the Court will let your attorney withdraw, and you will be given a limited time period to get a new lawyer.
