Personal Injury Lawyers Sued for Unethical Behavior
Posted on Jun 02, 2011Rick Shapiro, recently wrote about a serious breach in the ethical conduct of some Alabama lawyers. The conduct in question is that three separate people representing law firms tried to illegally solicit an injury victim for his personal injury case. Alabama law and state bar rules prohibit lawyers from approaching someone to solicit a case or hiring someone to solicit cases on their behalf. The firm representing the client is known for it's railroad employee injury and FELA work as we are. Learn more about how to choose an ethical attorney.
