My question involves malpractice by a lawyer in the state of: Ga
Can a lawyer withdraw himself from a case 12 hours before court date with out notice, after we paid him to represent us.
I just got a call from his legal aid to tell me they withdrawed.... He did say they tried to get opposing counsel to withdraw... and of course they refused.
So now it is 4pm and the court is 9 am...
I had an appointment with him on another case and was hoping he would go over this one.... since we have not discussed or prep for tomorrow trial..
Well our appointment was at 5pm yesterday.... I showed up early.... the receptionist told me he left and he nothing on the calender.
I did speak to another lawyer who had a conflicting mediation... but told me the lawyer is supposed to give 10 day notice... and signed by judge... is this true
Looks like I will be PRO SE... any advise would be appreciated.
