LEO: Commonwealth's Attorney - Personal Injury  LE Op. 429


Commonwealth's Attorney - Personal Injury Cases.


August 14, 1981


It is ethically permissible for members of a firm to handle personal

injury cases arising out of automobile accidents in a jurisdiction where

the son of a partner in the firm is Commonwealth's Attorney or Assistant

Commonwealth's Attorney. Whether an actual or apparent impropriety will

arise must be reviewed on a case by case basis. [See II: DR:5-101(A).]
