Subsequent Adverse Representation.
March 11, 1986
It is improper for an attorney to represent a wife in a divorce action
when the attorney previously represented the wife in securing an interest
in the marital home for her son of a prior marriage, and previously
represented both the husband and wife with regard to other marital
property, absent the husband's informed consent after full and adequate
disclosure. [ DR:4-101(B)(2), DR:5-105(D); LE Op. 672]
