35-Threatening Criminal and Disciplinary Action

36-Withdrawal from Representations

A lawyer against whom a disciplinary charge has been made does not necessarily have to withdraw from the representation that generated the complaint, and the lawyer may not withdraw without the client's consent if the client would be prejudiced by the withdrawal.
