LEO: Private Practice - Assistant LE Op. 600
Private Practice - Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney.
September 14, 1984
It is not improper for a part-time Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney to
represent a private party in a child custody or child support proceeding
in the attorney's local Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court when there
is the absence of any effort to, or implication that the public office
will or may, influence the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court's
disposition of the proceeding, and provided that, with respect to the
parties and their witnesses, there are no pending criminal charges, there
are no investigations known to the Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney and
there was no involvement in criminal matters relating to said parties or
witnesses in which the attorney had substantial responsibility. [ DR:8-
