  1. If what you mean to say is "whether the lawyer is conflicted out of the case," then the answer is no. There's no conflict here -- the aunt is not a party to your case.

    E. Alexandra "Sasha" Golden is a Massachusetts lawyer. All answers are based on Massachusetts law. All answers are for educational purposes and no attorney-client relationship is formed by providing an answer to a question.

  2. I agree that what you seem to be looking for here is a 'conflict of interest'. None exists here.

    I wish you luck.
