Thank you for the opportunity to answer your question. I am sending this answer to you only a few minutes after you submitted your question.
A person may fire his attorney and begin to represent himself at any time for any reason. However, it's usually not wise because most people don't have sufficient knowledge of the law or legal procedure to represent themselves competently. In other words, people who represent themselves often do more harm than good. Therefore, a person who is not happy with the representation
he's receiving is usually wise to resolve the matter with his attorney or terminate the relationship and retain a new attorney. Many attorney-client difficulties arise from poor communication by the attorney, the client, or both, and most situations like that can be resolved by sitting down with the attorney and explaining the concerns professionally, calmly, and in detail. Therefore, prior to representing one's self, such a discussion is usually a good idea. However, to answer your question, yes, an individual may represent himself, motion the court on his own, etc.
