Lawyer Conduct Issues For The Family Lawyer

In a paper directed at family lasers, Bruce Campbell of Campbell & LeBoeuf P.C. in Texas addresses some of the common ares where lawyers can get themselves into trouble. These include:

  • Conflicts of interest
  • Sex, lies and and sleeping with clients and others
  • Suits for Fees
  • Failure to adequately represent
  • Failure to advise and the scope of representation
  • Negligent misrepresentation and after applying interest
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Deceptive Trade Practices Act

Despite its prevalence, Campbell does not list outright criminal fraud but one can make the case this is at least partially covered in the Deceptive Trade Practices Act discussion.
