Multiple Representation - Bankruptcy.


August 10, 1984


It is improper for an attorney to represent an estate in litigation to

recover the proceeds of a promissory note payable to the decedent and,

simultaneously, to represent the trustee in decedent's bankruptcy for the

purpose of enforcing the same promissory note as an asset of the

bankrupt's estate in the reopened bankruptcy proceeding. [ DR:5-105(B), (
