Conflict of Interest Attorney as Litigant.


March 11, 1986


It is not improper for a litigant who is an attorney, but who is not representing himself, to directly contact the adverse litigant as long as such contact is not a device whereby counsel to the attorney litigant accomplishes something through his client which he could not do directly. [DR:7-103]
