Dear Alex,

Thank you for your follow up.

If you do want to fire your current attorney and hire another one, you would have to obtain court's permission to substitute attorneys and your current attorney would have to file Motion to Withdraw and if it is granted by the judge, then you can have your new attorney represent you at sentencing.

While this can be done, in many cases judges presiding over criminal cases would not allow criminal attorneys to withdraw until the case is over.

I wish you the best of luck and please let me know if you have any related follow up questions.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
