Introduction and Objectives

The objectives of the Withdrawal of Service Module are:

  • To recognize the circumstances in which you must withdraw services, and the circumstances in which you may withdraw services.
  • To learn the procedure for withdrawing services.
  • To understand that you must not place your client in a position of disadvantage as a result of withdrawing legal services.
  • To remind you of your rights and obligations when transferring a file to new counsel.
  • While we aim to present a comprehensive module, this module is not exhaustive. 

This module is not a substitute for exercising professional judgment and does not constitute legal advice.
