10 Updated and New Forms – In accordance with COMAR, counsel of record may file a notice of withdrawal of appearance only if the client has another attorney of record or the claim has been settled and there is no possibility of future medical benefits. Form C-25R Notice to Withdraw Appearance has been updated to clarify the requirements of COMAR If one of these requirements is not met, new form C-27 Motion to Withdraw Appearance must be filed for review and decision by the Commission. The updated C-25R and new C-27 forms are available our Forms & Instructions page; all requests to withdraw appearance must use either of these two forms for paper submission until further notice.
