PROFESSIONAL ETHICS OF THE FLORIDA BAR

OPINION 63-11
June 27, 1963

An attorney may represent a client in a restoration of competency where he had previously represented the client in a personal injury action but had been removed as counsel in that proceeding by a subsequently appointed guardian.

Canon: 7

Chairman Holcomb stated the opinion of the committee:

A member of The Florida Bar inquires whether he may represent a client in restoration of competency proceedings where he had previously represented her in a personal injury action, but had been replaced by counsel selected by a subsequently appointed guardian. We see no objection to him so representing the client.
