If the attorney chooses the second option and locates a replacement attorney, the attorney shall provide sufficient background information about the case to enable the replacement attorney to effectively represent the juvenile. 6.4 Any attorney who makes an appearance in a Juvenile Delinquency or Undisciplined proceeding shall provide the courtroom Juvenile Court Clerk with a cell phone number, pager number, or other mechanism for contacting the attorney when his or her presence is needed in court. 6.5 An attorney who enters an appearance or accepts an appointment in a Juvenile Delinquency or Undisciplined case shall continue to represent the juvenile throughout all stages of the proceedings (including but not limited to, first appearances, secured custody reviews, transfer hearings, probable cause hearings, adjudication, disposition, probation violations, motions for review, etc.) as long as the juvenile continues under the jurisdiction of the Court unless allowed to withdraw by the Court. 6.6 Leave of Court to withdraw from representation in a case shall only be granted for compelling reasons. 6.7 When an attorney is privately retained after an attorney has been appointed by the Court or the Public Defender, the retained attorney shall immediately notify appointed counsel and the Juvenile Court Clerk of his or her appearance in the case.
