Attorney as Witness - Withdrawal.
April 10, 1984
It is improper for an attorney/partner to represent the
partnership/defendant/counterclaimant in a suit in which it is likely that
the attorney will be called as a witness. If the attorney has appeared as
counsel for the partnership, he must withdraw. [ DR:5-101(A), DR:5-102,
