I dismissed my attorney, and on 30 December, 2009, he filed a motion to withdraw. It says:

Please take notice that on January 5, 2010, at 9:30 a.m., or as soon thereafter as the Court may designate, the undersigned will bring on his Motion to Withdraw. You are invited to attend and participate, but your absence will not prevent the undersigned from requesting the relief sought in the motion.

Should I go to the hearing? I dismissed him because he didn’t provide a lot of evidence I had in my case. Can I not go to the hearing?


Your attorney has to file the motion with the court in order for the court to release him as attorney of record. He has filed the motion in a timely manner. You may attend the hearing if you wish, but it is not necessary.
