    Arrow Lawyer Conflict of Interest

    My cousin is my and my husband's lawyer in an upcoming custody dispute between him and his child's mother that's bound to get ugly. We all grew up in a small town and we all knew each other several years ago. As weird as it may sound, my lawyer got into a car accident with the child's mother's brother (child's uncle) way back then.

    My cousin has since moved far away, doesn't associate with anyone from that town other than us, had her name legally changed and had gastric bypass surgery and looks NOTHING like her old self. If they happen to somehow pick up on the fact that it's (the old) her, can they present a conflict of interest because of the accident?

    If you believe your lawyer has a conflict of interest, talk to your lawyer about it.

    How do you propose that his accident with the mother's brother creates a conflict of interest in relation to the mother? They're separate people.

    My lawyer says "it shouldn't". I don't propose anything whatsoever. I was simply wondering in the eyes of the law so I could educate myself and know what to expect when we go to court.
