Default Opposing the motion to dismiss legal counsel

TX

I hired an attorney to represent me in business case, after I paid him the retainer he filed Motion to be dismiss from the case without doing what I asked him to do, he agreed before retainer was paid he could do. I want to Oppose him being dismissed from the case, what is the wording in my Motion do I use/ format to submit my filing to "Oppose his motion to be Dismiss from case"?

In this regard you can file a Response to Motion to dismiss stating all your oppositions to each and every points raised by the attorney for his withdrawal .

It sounds like you should find another lawyer for your case and have him respond demanding a return of your retainer for failure to perform. You cannot make a lawyer do more than minimal actions to not warrant a complaint, rather than vigorously act on your behalf.

Why would you want this attorney to continue to represent you when he obviously doesn't want to???

Get a refund if you can, and then get a new lawyer!

That is exactly what I did 8 months ago and it worked out fine.
Let the new guy sweat the details and diplomacy of it all.
