My husband hired a lawyer for a divorce from me who I paid for a divorce consultation 3 years ago. The lawyer has a file on me. Is this a conflict of interest?

I think so. For a better answer, call the South Carolina Bar Ethics Advisory Committee at (803) 799-6653, ext. 154 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. I would also bring it to the attorney's attention in writing.
