I am very sorry to hear this. What is to happen in court two days?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Well it's my trial date which has been adjourned to this date & im not sure what to say to judge until I get new counsel
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I've called around but u know it's hard to find counsel over the weekend
Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

There is very little possibility that you will find a lawyer by your trial date.

All you have to do is attend court and tell the judge that you just found out that your lawyer is no longer prepared to represent you and that you need an adjournment so that you can retain another lawyer.

If you let me know your province I can possibly suggest a way to find a lawyer.

Does that help?
