A: It is not typical. It could mean many things, bad lawyers chosen and fired, client is too difficult to deal with, attorneys learned information that make it so they can’t or do not want to continue representation.

A: It can also mean that the defendant attorneys have a malpractice insurance carrier that is difficult to work with or that doesn't timely pay the attorneys it hires to represent the defendant attorneys. In my professional experience, the number one reason why attorneys defending a case withdraw is that they haven't been timely paid for their services.
