Personal Injury Law
Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, I am reviewing your question. You could file a motion for an injunction to enjoin (or stop or preclude) the other side from doing certain things. But the court is not going to conduct an investigation for you - they do not have the resources for that. You could ask for a stay of proceedings while you investigate yourself. If the opponent is OK with his attorney leaving and a new one coming on board it is unlikely you will be able to find that successfully.
I'm sorry -- I meant fight that successfully.
Are you a party to the other case from which the attorney is withdrawing? You need to be a party to file a motion in the case. If you are not a party yet, you will need to file a motion to intervene, and you will need to have a basis for your intervention.
