8. My Lawyer Threatened To Withdraw From The Case If I Did Not Follow The Lawyers Advise. Can A Lawyer Do That?

Occasionally, lawyers and clients have such strong opposing views that they lawyer cannot effectively carry out the client’s desired strategy. In such a situation, the attorney may seek to withdraw as the client’s counsel or the client may seek to have the attorney replaced. Whether this will be permitted in either case depends on whether the proceedings will be unnecessarily delayed or disrupted and the judge must rule on it.
