On Tuesday I had an attorney in Kansas that voluntarily withdrew. I have a related court appearance in Missouri this coming Tuesday that involves the exact same evidence which my now former attorney has. I went to her office to request my case file and was told I won't be able to get it until Monday at 4pm. I had also sent and email and left a voicemail the night before. My court date is Tuesday at 8:30am. Is this legal? I know the file has to be turned over and I've been scrambling to obtain new counsel, but without access to my case file I feel like I've been screwed over. Under what circumstances does my case file need to be turned over? Do I need to make a formal request in writing, do I have to give her some notice? She voluntarily withdrew so shouldn't she have known this.
