The lawyer wants to withdraw as counsel of record. That means the lawyer wouldn't be filing any appeals or writs. The attorney won't be representing the client on future parole violations.
Unless there's some future legal action that's anticipated, the lawyer's motion is a formality. He wasn't retained or obligated to do anything else, and there was nothing left to do.
