Attorney as Potential Witness - Declining Employment.


September 18, 1974


It is improper for an attorney, who had previously testified in support

of the mental competence of a conveyor during a proceeding to set aside a

conveyance, to thereafter undertake to represent the conveyor and the

conveyor's guardian in further proceedings on remand even though said

conveyor was not a party to the initial proceedings. [See II: DR:5-101(B)
