Attorney - Familial Relationship - Conflict of Interest.
July 10, 1987
It is not improper for an attorney in firm "A" to represent a client when
the adverse party is represented by the spouse of another attorney in firm "
A" as long as the attorney makes full and adequate disclosure to and
receives consent from his client. Conversely, it is not improper for the
spouse to continue representing her client as long as full disclosure is
made to her client and consent received. [ LE Op. 619 and LE Op. 190]
