Conflict of Interest
« on: Jun 03, 2005, 01:45:35 PM »
An attorney in Benton County, Washington State has come highly recommended by several friends/associates.  He is supposed to be aggressive & pro-shared-parenting.  I have had the opportunity to meet him as he was my son's baseball coach this spring.  He obviously has also met & had contact with CP.  I am sure the attorney would tell me if it was a conflict of interest, but I don't really want to air our personal business if I can't hire him.

Q1:  Is prior contact through sports, school or other activities considered conflict of interest?

Thanks.

Only if the attorney felt some that personal obligation to either/both of you would affect his ability to represent you.
