Lawyer lied to court that my niece had DWI and not true
The lawyer could get into serious trouble for telling a lie under oath or misleading the court.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
Lawyers are sworn officers of the courts in the state(s) where they are licensed, and may never knowingly propound false theories or statements of fact upon the court. If a judge finds this to have happened, both sanctions and bar discipline are highly probable. You may wish to have a local lawyer look into this to better determine whether the counsel of record in this case actually made the false statement with knowledge of its falsity. Best regards.
