My name is ***** ***** I am an experienced criminal lawyer.
Go in to court tomorrow and, if it's your arraignment plead not guilty. Then just explain to the judge that you'd retained a lawyer but she discovered a conflict of interest and just withdrew from the case over the weekend. Ask the judge for a brief continuance for you to retain new counsel.
The judge should grant your request without giving you a hard time.
