Ingham was appointed as Spears' attorney in 2008.
In her testimony last month, the singer said Ingham advised her against speaking out about her feelings regarding the 13-year conservatorship.
She also testified that she was unaware that she was allowed to petition the court to end the conservatorship.

"I know I've grown with a personal relationship with Sam, my lawyer. I've been talking to him, like, three times a week now," Spears said.
"We've kind of built a relationship, but I haven't really had the opportunity — by my own self — to actually handpick my own lawyer by myself.
"And I would like to be able to do that."
It comes after the Circus singer's long-time manager Larry Rudolph announced his resignation this week.
