Paralegal ethics question. Is there a conflict of interest?
I recently got a second job as a virtual legal assistant. My new attorney asked me to work on a pleading, at which point I learn that he is representing a client who also uses the services of my main attorney. I know if my new attorney was representing the party suing the client then it would be a conflict, but I'm not sure since both my attorneys represent the same client. I emailed the virtual attorney, but haven't received a response yet.
Client is free to choose any counsel they want - it helps if counsel are apprised especially if they are working on the same matter or issue.
