Court Rule

N1012 Appearance; Withdrawal


(a) Every initial pleading or legal paper filed with the Clerk of the Court Civil Division by an attorney shall be accompanied by a separate written entry of appearance. The appearance shall include the attorney's identification number and a typed or printed name and address. The Clerk shall promptly forward a copy of every appearance to the Court Administrator to facilitate proper notification to all counsel of record of pending matters.
(b) No attorney shall represent the interests of a party to any civil action in the Court or before a Domestic Relations Hearing Officer, or special Master or Conciliator appointed by the Court unless or until he files a written entry of appearance.
(c) An attorney may not withdraw an appearance without leave of court unless the client continues to be represented by another counsel already of record or a new attorney enters an appearance at the time of the withdrawal of appearance.
(d) The motion to withdraw the appearance, whenever leave of court is required, shall include satisfactory evidence that the client has been notified of the intent to present the motion to the Court in compliance with Rule N206 and that all reasonable steps have been taken to avoid prejudice to the client.
