    Question Can A Lawyer Still Represent After Becoming Intervening Party?

    This deals with NJ and CA. I have come across a stituation regarding a voided corporation where the representing lawyers knew about the lack of capacity but acted in its name during the case anyways instead of fixing the problem. It is now being asserted that the lawyers intervened in the case. Can lawyers still represent their clients in a case when they become parties to the action?

    Ask whomever it is who is claiming they are intervenors to provide you with their purported authority. Laws are different in each state, and it is safe to say this litigation is not occurring in two states. Look up California's statutes here, and New Jersey's here. You can research recent case law for free here.
