Dear [Recipients Name],

I am writing to inform you that I would like to terminate the legal relationship. Therefore, as of 20th November 2015, you are released from any obligation to represent me as my legal counsel.

Kindly avail to me all the documents that relate to my case and the invoice of your fees. It has been a pleasure working you over the past few months. I appreciate the hard work and the long hours you put in when working on my case.

For further clarifications or questions, contact me on 888888.
