An attorney who engaged in a conflict in interest in an adoption matter has been reprimanded by a panel of the Arkansas Committee on Professional Conduct.
The attorney represented the birth mother, the newborn child (as court-appointed temporary guardian), and the couple seeking the adoption. She also had a personal conflict of interest.
The attorney also had failed to disclose her conflicts in a conference call and correct statements made during that call. (Mike Frisch)
