Filing Motions Of Disqualification
In some cases, it is easy to recognize a conflict of interest with a potential or current client. In other cases, attorneys may run across issues in their practice that they may be unsure about, and may or may not be an actual conflict of interest.
A lawyer may be disqualified from representing a client if they have a relationship with their client in a matter that is non-related to their current case. In civil court, filing a motion of disqualification can protect you when you anticipate a conflict of interest. Century Law Group, LLP, will analyze your situation and can draft a declaration on your behalf that will either support the granting or denial of the disqualification.
We can also help you set up an ethical screen in your legal practice to identify and avoid potential problems with clients.
