Can I Get Rid of A Court-Appointed Lawyer?
The short answer is yes. However, this can be very risky if you don’t hire a new lawyer first. Courts generally do not like for defendants to fire their attorneys during the course of trial, and may not allow a defendant to fire their attorneys.
The other option is to hire an attorney before you fire the court-appointed lawyer. At that point, the new lawyer can file a motion to substitute counsel. So long as everything is done properly, the court is much more likely to allow the change of counsel.
