    律師有三個方法可以在民事或者刑事訴訟上停止代表你 結案。你的案子總會結束。在這種情況下,大多數律師會發終止訊給你,通知你他不會再繼續處理你的案件。比如,你的案子被法官駁回了,或者已跟對方和解,或者在審訊中作出了裁決。 代換。你可以自願解除你律師的代理,然後送交法院一份代換律師的表格http://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/mc050.pdf 通知法院之後誰會​​代理你,以及如何聯繫此人。新的代理人可以是你自己或者一位律師。代換在Code of Civil Procedure (“CCP”) § 284(1) 項下被允許。 退出。你的律師可以向法院送交動議和宣告,要求法院下令批准他在沒有你同意的情況下退出你的案子。自願代換的方式更佳,所以除非客戶不同意解除律師的代理,律師通常不會選擇退出。退出在CCP § 284(2)和California Rule of Court 3.1362項下被允許。 律師退出的常見原因 有時,客戶和律師因為某些原因無法再繼續合作。律師方面,常見的原因包括客戶不付錢,不配合律師的要求或建議,或者對他的律師不誠實。一個較少見的原因是客戶在做或者打算做的事使律師基於職業道德無法繼續代理;比方說,出具假的證言或者製造假證據,或者繼續起訴一個律師覺得沒有勝訴理由的案子。 當你律師要退出的時候 如果有這種情況,律師會要求他的客戶在代換錶格上簽名。有時,雖然律師跟客戶解釋了選擇代換律師而不是強迫律師正式退出有很多好處,還是有客戶不同意。退出常常伴隨著委託關係的嚴重破裂(要不然,客戶會跟律師合作簽名。)有時這種破裂就會導致客戶不能完全理解律師退出的後果,因為他已經不相信律師所說的話了。 關於取消代表的道德規定 有時律師“必須”退出,有時律師“可以”退出,就叫強制性和任意性退出。 強制性退出 如果律師繼續代表一個客戶會導致犯道德規範,或者他在精神上或身體上無法實際有效地代理他客戶;或者他獲悉一個案子沒合理根據,那麼律師“必須”退出。 。 California Rule of Professional Conduct 3-700(B). 任意性退出 如果客戶堅持提出無法得到支持的申訴或實行非法活動,或者堅持要律師這樣做;或者客戶不按照聘用合約支付報酬和費用;或者拒絕聽取律師的意見;或者給律師的代理造成不合理的困難,律師“可以”退出。 California Rule of Professional Conduct 3-700(C).   退出的法律 偶然性案件的後來恢復 如果律師偶然性強制退出了案件,而該案後來和解了或者在審判中獲勝,他有權收回退出之前欠他部分的服務費。但在要求收回的時候,律師需要證明: (1) 律師退出是法律上或州律師工會規定的強制性的,不是任意性的;(2)退出的主要動機是因為律師必須遵守法律上或者州律師工會的道德義務;(3)律師的行為是善意的; (4)律師退出之後,客戶已恢復;和(5)律師證明了他的工作對客戶的恢復有可衡量的幫助。 Estate of Falco, 188 Cal.App.3d 1004, 1016 […]Continue reading
