Lawyers who are not given sufficient cooperation or compensation can inform a client that they are dropping the case with this attorney resignation letter.
This letter informs you that I am resigning from your case. You have not made the deposit toward my retainer, and are now in breach of the agreement you signed. Also, during the weeks that I have worked on your case in good faith, you have repeatedly sought to engage me in perpetuating your criminal enterprise.
Because discovery had just begun, and several suitable replacements have been discussed, this should have no negative repercussions on your case.
I have notified the court of the situation and expect Judge (name) will affirm that the attorney-client relationship must be severed.
