  • 2Can my attorney withdraw 3 years into our case with a pending court date?

    This is about an auto accident case where someone rear ended us and fled the scene. We hired this attorney about 3 years ago and now they want to withdraw, after already setting up a court date. They couldn't even refer us to someone. They claim "conflict" as their reasoning, but they are the ones who have been rude and hard to work with. We did send a letter to the courts explaining our side of this, but we are clueless about what else to do. I did not know an attorney could just leave you high and dry like this, especially without referring us to someone who could help us. Its been hard to find a replacement as its so far into the case and the court date is 2 months away. Can someone shine some light on this please?

I am unaware of what the second portion of the bankruptcy is. Does any one know the procedure to complete my bankruptcy and continue my education (of course without financial assistance)?
