Do I have to abide by an agreement made by my attorney with the judge and opposing counsel.
I was named as a responded in a court case. My attorney and petitioner’s attorney had a private meeting with the judge behind closed doors. My attorney agreed that I would consent to my mothers bank records being disclosed for the past 17 years to petitioner. I held a power of attorney at the time but used it for only 11 years straight for only 4 transactions. I was joint owner of all accounts. Do I have to abide by an agreement made by my attorney with the judge and opposing counsel and without my consent. I do not want to turn over any records as petitioner is mentally unstable. I am proceeding to represent myself and asked my lawyer to withdraw.
I would recommend you tell your attorney to bring it to the judge's attention that you do not consent. If your attorney will not do that, you should strongly consider getting another attorney.
You will have to discharge your lawyer and then ask the court to strike or vacate the agreement; but you must be prepared to give them a good reason to do so.
