Can Both Parties Use One Divorce Attorney?

Can We Use One Attorney?

What’s the deal on using one lawyer? It is unethical for an attorney to represent or give legal advice to opposing parties, whether it is a friendly case or not. When we hear of parties “using the same attorney,” the likelihood is that they are doing something different. There is a way for one lawyer to provide divorce legal services ethically in this circumstance.
