Attorney and Client Disengagement Letter

unnecessary liability and possible problems with the State Bar. This template can be
modified to add specific terms to make sure that the parties understandings are clearly
set forth. This template can be used by attorneys and small business clients that want
to terminate an attorney-client relationship.
