Question: Can a lawyer marry a client?

To its credit, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, in its Standards of Conduct in Family Law Litigation, prohibits absolutely a sexual relationship with a client or opposing counsel during the time of the representation (§ 2.16 [1991]).

Can lawyers represent friends?

There are no special rules for representing friends and relatives – lawyers who provide legal assistance to relatives are bound by the same rules that apply to any lawyer-client relationship.
