Personal Injury - Conflicts in Interests.


January 2, 1974


It is improper for an attorney to undertake defense of one party to a

three car accident when the interests of that party are potentially

adverse to the interests of another party to the accident, whom the

attorney had successfully defended on a murder charge arising out of the

same accident. [See II: DR:5-105 and DR:4-101.]
