When is a lawyer able to withdraw from a wrongfull termination case?

Is the lawyer able to withdraw at any point in the case at their discretion? Or are there certain requirements that must be met.

Nathan’s Answer

Usually, a lawyer asks for a substitution of attorney. A lawyer may also file a motion to be relieved as counsel with the court. The courts usually grant these unless the motion is too close to a point in time where the client's case may be prejudiced by the status transfer of attorney of record back to the original client, since everyone usually starts out as their own attorney.
