Lawyers And Conflicts Of Interest
When you hire legal counsel to protect your rights, you expect that your lawyer will place your needs above the concerns of other parties. In fact, attorneys have an ethical obligation to avoid any conduct that places the interest of one client of the attorney above the interests of the same attorneys’ other clients. Such an act is considered to be an unethical conflict of interest. A client is entitled to a duty of undivided loyalty from his or her attorney.
