Divorce Confidences Conflict.

 

September 20, 1973

 

It is improper for attorney to represent one spouse in a divorce when the other spouse had previously consulted attorney's firm regarding a divorce even though that other spouse has now employed another firm and the instant grounds for divorce are unrelated to the grounds discussed initially with attorney's firm. [See II: DR:5-105.]
