LEO: Attorney as Witness Re Advice to, LE Op. 198


    Attorney as Witness Re Advice to Client.


    April 4, 1969


    It is not improper for an attorney to advise his client to refuse a blood test in connection with an arrest for driving under the influence, but it may be improper (depending upon the facts) for the attorney to continue as counsel for his client if the attorney expects to testify on behalf of his client as to his advice. [See II: DR:5-102.]
