There is an attorney that is now betraying his defendant because he was involved with the defendants mother and things didn’t workout.
That is neither a conflict or an ethical issue: however, if the relationship does interfere with the representation that attorney should consider stepping aside.
This may be an ethical violation and a violation of the Texas Disciplinary Rules for attorneys. If this is your lawyer - you should consider firing the lawyer and hiring another. The client can file a grievance with the State Bar of Texas about the lawyer's conduct, too.
The lawyer above is not licensed in Texas and the answer is not completely accurate.
