Good evening,

There's no right or wrong way to do it. As the client, your father has the right to fire their lawyer at any time they wish. A sample letter might say something like this:

NOTICE OF TERMINATION OF REPRESENTATION

Month, Day, 20XX
Office of [Attorney's Office]
Address
City, State, Zip

To [Attorney Name]

[Mr./Ms.] [Attorney Name] Please accept this letter as formal notice that you are hereby released from any obligation and or contract to litigate on my behalf or to represent me as legal counsel, effective immediately.

Please forward to me a final accounting of fees along with any and all records, transcripts, and documents relating to my case. (You may instead want your case materials to be forwarded to another attorney, if you have one.)

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact me at once.

Sincerely,

Name
Address
City, State, Zip
Phone

Of course your father can modify the letter to suit his needs. Like I said, there's no one way to write the letter, and no one "correct" way.

I apologize for replying to you late as I had a family emergency that I needed to take care of.Do I have to put the title of the letter the notice of termination?My father already found another traffic lawyer to handle his traffic ticket case but I have not mailed the letter to fire the other traffic attorney. Is it too late to still mail the letter of termination to the traffic lawyer?But this traffic lawyer did not get my permission from my father and she just took his traffic ticket from the DMV system and decided to take over the traffic ticket on her own without my fathers consent. Is that legal for her to do that?How do I report and make a complaint about this traffic lawyer?

Good evening,

No worried about the late follow-up. I certainly hope everything is okay with you. You don't have to put the title in the letter (or you change it to something different if you prefer). Like I said, there's no right or wrong way to do this letter, your father just needs to express to this attorney that they are not their lawyer.

This lawyer should not have entered a notice of appearance (a notice of record with the court) that she was acting as your father's lawyer without his consent, no. It's not unusual for a person to receive solicitations from lawyers after a traffic citation --the citations are public record and many attorneys pay for services that will give them a printout of daily citations so that they can send out a card offering their assistance - but they should not have told the court that they were your father's lawyer on the case if they did not have his consent.

Typically you can report the attorney to the bar association. If you tell me what state this is in, I can send you a link to where your father would file a complaint, or you can just Google "____________ (state) lawyer complaint" and it should come right up.

Thank you, ***** ***** provide you an excellent 5 star rating and review. I appreciate your assistance. I am in the state of NY. Is it legal for this lawyer to intake the traffic ticket without my father's consent?

No. That wouldn't be legal in any state that I'm aware of. The lawyer should not be putting themselves as the attorney of record on a case without a client's consent. A client gets to choose who they wish to represent them when hiring a private attorney.
