4-Witness-Advocate Rule

58-Real Estate Lawyers

64-Lawyers Acting as Deed of Trust Trustees

The Code of Professional Responsibility applies whenever a lawyer is acting in a fiduciary relationship, even if there is no attorney-client relationship (such as a lawyer acting as trustee under a Deed of Trust). A lawyer acting as trustee and acting pro se may testify.
