Conflict of Interest Multiple Employment.

 

November 13, 1984

 

It is not improper for an attorney to represent three brothers in personal injury claims resulting from an automobile accident in which one of the brothers, who was driving, may have been at fault, when the three brothers have consented to the representation after full disclosure of the possible effect on the exercise of the attorney's independent professional judgment in behalf of each brother, and when it is possible for the attorney to adequately represent the interest of each brother. [DR:5-105(B), (C)]
