December 29, 1984
It is not improper for an attorney to participate in circuit court cases
in which it is necessary for said attorney to move that the court should
direct the Department of Social Services to conduct home studies or to
investigate households involved in adoption cases, when the attorney's
wife is a social worker employed by the Department of Social Services, who
does not perform such home studies and investigations as a part of her
employment duties. [ DR:5-105, DR:9-101, EC:9-2, LE Op. 608]
