LEO: Costs — Medical Records LE Op. 820
Costs — Medical Records.
September 19, 1986
It is not improper for an attorney to pay the cost of medical records requested by the attorney for a client who has since retained other counsel, provided the client remains ultimately responsible. Whether or not the attorney is obligated to pay the costs of the medical records is a legal question beyond the purview of the committee. [DR:5-103(B)]
