Representing Buyer And Seller Leads To Bar Complaint

A complaint filed by the Illinois ARDC charges an attorney with a conflict of interest in representing both the buyer and seller in a real estate transaction. The fee charged to the buyers (who had initially retained the lawyer) was $400; the seller paid $175. According to the complaint, a dispute arose between buyer and seller: the lawyer had agreed to hold a $900 check for the purchase of items by the buyer that included a freezer. As of the filing of the bar charges, the dispute remains unresolved. The freezer remains in the house. (Mike Frisch)
