Yes. An attorney can withdraw their services at their discretion. If however it creates a significant problem or if some way prejudices the outcome of the case,legal remedies can be pursued. Such as a civil suit against the attorney for damages and restitution of any money that was paid.

In the case of contingency arrangement if you lawyer dropped your case and you werent able to find a new lawyer what will happen to your case?

You may ask for a Continuance (motion and notice). However, if you still can't find an attorney (just because your last attorney dropped the case) you have to represent yourself. The law is that the legal process continues - with the party available. You may sue your attorney if he dropped the case because he have to have a mighty good reason to drop a case - you may also make sure you take him to the legal board in your state. That's what I will do with the rat who dropped my case -- after I finish with my case.

If a warrant is dropped are the charges dropped also?

Not necessarily. The arrest warrant is an order from the court to the police, telling the police to arrest you and bring you before the court to answer to charges. If the court believes you will appear on your own, it can recall or quash the warrant, and you will be free until the court has ruled on the original charges. If you want to find out if charges against you have been dropped, call the prosecutor's office (the DA, State's Attorney, or City Attorney) handling the case. They will know.

How much time does the dea have to appeal a case after charges are dropped?

Do you mean dropped or dismissed? Charges are dropped by the prosecutors office and since (presumably) the case never reached trial, no judicial action took place that action is not appealable in court.

Filed for divorce I have a judgment for child support and custody found out my attorney never filed a order after hearing for divorce does this mean I still married its been since 2002 in California?

Court orders are not filed by the attorney. If there was a decree it would be entered into the record by the court. You can visit the court, request to see the file and check to see if there is a divorce decree entered in the case. If there is no decree then you are still married.It would be your responsibility to make sure your attorney followed through to the end in your case. However, if you find your attorney dropped the ball and didn't follow through then you can send a written complaint to your state board of bar overseers.Court orders are not filed by the attorney.

How do you get a federal hold lifted?

If you are currently incarcerated you have to speak with your attorney. They can contact your PO to convince them that a federal hold is not a probation violation. If the case is dropped then most likely you will not be in violation on a federal level. Feds only care about major cases and if your violation is small they might release the hold if the attorney talks to the PO.
