Attorney Conflict of Interest

Dear jp:

Greetings. No, once he has met with the firm it is unlikely that they will meet with you, although you can call them and ask. I believe that they will likely be conflicted out. Thank you.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

My husband just left a week ago. I had no idea what was going on. He snowed me for a few days with telling me he just needed a break not a divorce, etc. He lied. Anyway- He went and made an appointment with the top divorce attorney in the area. He ended up meeting with a partner- not the top one he was hoping for- he has not retained this firm for legal representation as of yet. Will this firm be able to represent me, if I so choose? He did not meet with the lawyer I want to meet with. All he had was a consultation. Will they be able to represent me or can he make a claim for conflict of interest?
