There are circumstances in which a lawyer can become a witness. Such as when the judge orders both litigants counsel to attend at the marital home after court for one litigant to remove something from the home. Both lawyers have now become witnesses to what transpired at the marital home. Problem is that they can not act as your lawyer and a witness at the same time. It will be expensive to call them as a witness and would not be allowed by the court except under extraordinary circumstances. The TMC judge would need to give permission.
