It means that the attorney is asking the court to be allowed to leave the case.
So the client will no longer have an attorney, they must either represent themselves or retain (hire) a new attorney to represent them.
Usually the court will give them time to get a new attorney (usually 3-4 weeks ) but this depends on the status of the specific case.
