The only other thing I suggest, is to write a letter to the Jude presiding over your case, acknowledging the fact that your attorney is withdrawing and that you do not have any objection to it. Based on the fact that you sent a letter to the attorney discharging him/her from their duties to represent you and that you received a copy of the motion and do not object, your presence is not needed. However, make sure that the date the motion is heard by the Judge, is not the same date of a scheduled court hearing. The reason being, if your attorney is withdrawing and you are not there to get the paper work of a scheduled hearing, you will miss your next court date.
