No objection from previous advocate


I had appointed an advocate to deal a civil case in 2009.Now i want to appoint another advocate as i am not satisfied with the previous advocate.Is it compulsory to take no-objection from the previous advocate.If yes, what to do ,if the previous advocate rejects to give no-objection .

Advocate

The Learned Advocate, who was already engaged to act, appear and plead on your behalf will have no objection to retire from the matter, once the account is understood and settled. First of all settle and square of the account, if any, outstanding. Here, you should pay the agreed and contracted professional fees, irrespective half trial conducted, or else no lawyer is bound to provide objection. An advocate has authority to keep lien over the brief.And you are necessarily required to place the no objection on the record of the court.
