LEO: Public Office - Private Representation - LE Op. 670
Public Office - Private Representation - Use of Status.
March 15, 1985
It is not improper for an attorney who is also a public officer such as a
commissioner in chancery, or a trustee in a U.S. bankruptcy court to
represent clients before such courts. It is only the attorney who attempts
to use such status of public office to advance a private cause who
violates EC:8-8 and DR:8-101(A).
