That he wasn't going to be representing me any more. This was on the day of my court hearing. My lawyer wouldn't give me my case file or anything. What can I do pertaining to this situation?

If the attorney filed a notice of appearance or represented you before the Court, that attorney must file a motion to withdraw and you... Read more »

Consult a bankruptcy attorney to see if a Chapter 7 or 13 could help you.
answered on Jan 23, 2019
NO, as Default Judgments are frequently set aside for little or no reason. Your attorney may be pursuing another method of receiving money prior to going through the motions of what would probably be set aside later.

Rarely will a court appointed attorney be replaced with different appointed counsel. I am not aware of any "forms" for doing so.

Can a non-lawyer start a law firm in TN
answered on Feb 20, 2017
You cannot practice law in Tennessee without admission to the bar or in limited circumstances being supervised by someone who is admitted. Is your question about entering into a business partnership with a lawyer?

Sorry, but you haven't provided enough information to understand your situation. Please explain what you mean by "wholesaling." Generally, a seller can sell to whoever they want. Buyer and seller are free to agree on all kinds of terms.
