• A conservator
• A probate fiduciary
• An unincorporated association
• A trustee

If you are one of these parties, YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY SEEK LEGAL ADVICE REGARDING LEGAL

default judgment.
5. If this motion is granted and a client is representing himself or herself, the client will be solely responsible for the case.

If this motion to be relieved as counsel is granted, you will not have an attorney representing you. You may wish to
seek legal assistance. If you do not have a new attorney to represent you in this action or proceeding, and you are

rules and applicable laws. If you fail to do so, or fail to appear at hearings, action may be taken against you. You may
lose your case.

losing the case.
