Is a defendant's lack of trust in an appointed attorney sufficient to compel appointment of a substitute counsel?

California, United States of America


The following excerpt is from People v. Hall, H040000 (Cal. App. 2014):

"--such as whether to file particular motions--" 'do not by themselves constitute an "irreconcilable conflict." ' " (People v. Valdez (2004) 32 Cal.4th 73, 95.) Nor is "a defendant's claimed lack of trust in, or inability to get along with, an appointed attorney . . . sufficient to compel appointment of substitute counsel." (People v. Jones, supra, at p. 1246.)
