76-Trust and Estate Lawyers

A lawyer may represent a husband both in his role as administrator of an estate and in his role as individual beneficiary in litigation "regarding whether certain real estate belongs in the augmented estate." Although the husband has different roles, he must be considered the same client for conflicts purposes.
