FLORIDA BAR ETHICS OPINION
June 27, 1963
Advisory ethics opinions are not binding.
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.
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had been replaced by counsel selected by a subsequently appointed guardian.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.
