Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you asking to fire a court appointed lawyer who was appointed to represent someone else?
If you have a valid power of attorney you can fire the lawyer.
You are able to obtain another lawyer IF the person represented has a legal right to a lawyer (such as a criminal case).
That said - there isn't a right to continue firing lawyers and getting new ones.
If possible, it is best to have a new lawyer lined up beforehand.
Thank you for your answer. Sincerely,

Is there any other power of attorney that I need to get for a mental health patient other than Durable Power of Attorney?
You will probably need a medical professional confirming that the patient is incapable of making such decisions and the court may require that a guardian ad litem be appointed on behalf of the person if he/she is incompetent.
How do I go about getting charges dropped for an incompetent person?
