Was It Served On Mother's Day?
The Idaho State Bar website has a summary of a recent disciplinary case involving a lawyer who had represented his stepfather in seeking a divorce from his mother. The stepfather had seriously wounded himself by a self-inflicted gunshot. Medical bills threatened the family's financial future. The divorce was designed to transfer assets to the mother in order to shield them from the stepfather's creditors. A stayed 180 suspension was imposed for the attorney's failure to adequately consult with the stepfather, as well as the conflict of interest in undertaking a divorce action against his mother.
