54-Insurance Defense Lawyers

A lawyer representing a trucking company and driver in a wrongful death case learns that the driver has had a number of earlier tickets, and there is a dispute about whether the driver reported the tickets to the trucking company. The lawyer has withdrawn from representing the driver but wants to continue representing the company. The lawyer could do so only with the driver's consent, because the lawyer had earlier represented the driver.
