MOTION TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL DUE TO CONFLICT OF INTEREST


FLORIDA CRIMINAL CASE FILINGS | HUSSEIN & WEBBER, PL


The following sample Florida Motion to Withdraw as Counsel can be used in criminal proceedings where an attorney encounters a conflict of interest. These materials are provided for general reference only, and are not intended as a substitute for legal advice or for legal representation by a qualified Jacksonville criminal attorney.        


MOTION TO WITHDRAW AS COUNSEL


 DEFENSE ATTORNEY, counsel in the above-captioned case, requests this Court enter an Order permitting XXXXXX to withdraw as counsel for the above-named Defendant.  As grounds for this Motion, the undersigned states as follows:

1. The undersigned represents the Defendant in the above-captioned case in which she is charged with one count of Petit Theft (M2).

2. The undersigned has a conflict with representation of Defendant in that this office previously represented XXX XXXXX, a co-defendant in regard to the same incident, in case number 05-2011-MM-016237-BXXX. The undersigned represented Ms. XXXXX through trial, and obtained an acquittal in the case.    

3. Representation of the above-named defendants would create the appearance of impropriety, would give rise to impermissible conflicts of interest, and would raise issues with regard to the maintenance of client confidentiality.

 WHEREFORE, undersigned counsel respectfully requests this Honorable Court grant this Motion to Withdraw as counsel for the above-named Defendant.
