|(a) An attorney may withdraw from representing a party
only if a written motion showing good cause for withdrawal is filed
by the withdrawing attorney, the substituting attorney, or the client.
(1) If another attorney is to be substituted as attorney
for the party, the motion shall state: the substituted attorney's
name, address, telephone number, and email address; that the substituting
attorney has been notified of all pending settings and deadlines;
and that the substituting attorney approves the substitution.
(2) If the party has no substitute attorney, the motion
shall state: the party's last known address, telephone number, and
email address; that the party has been notified of all pending settings
and deadlines; and whether the party consents to the withdrawal. If
the party does not consent to the withdrawal, the attorney also must
affirm that the party has been served with a copy of the motion and
informed of the right to object to the withdrawal.
(b) A motion to withdraw must be served on all parties
and must comply with §155.305(b)(2) of this chapter.
(c) An attorney will remain a party's attorney of record
until a filed motion to withdraw has been granted by the judge.
(d) If the motion to withdraw is granted, the withdrawing
attorney shall immediately notify the party or substitute attorney
in writing of any settings or deadlines of which the attorney has
knowledge at the time of the withdrawal and about which the attorney
has not already notified the party or substitute attorney.
(e) A state agency may substitute one attorney for
another by providing written notice to all parties and the judge without
necessity for a motion or order.
