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)]
