Withdrawal of privately retained counsel. Allows a privately retained counsel in a criminal case to withdraw from representation without leave of court after certification of a charge by a district court by providing written notice within 10 days of the certification to the client, the attorney for the Commonwealth, and the circuit court, provided such withdrawal occurs pursuant to the terms of a written agreement between the attorney and the client. The bill also directs the Judicial Council to review the current process for withdrawal of privately retained counsel in civil cases and submit a report by November 1, 2017, to the Chairmen of the House and Senate Committees for Courts of Justice.
