My x husband is claiming conflict of interest. He found out who my appeals attorney and apparently he called him in Jan of 2016 and asked him questions for 12 minutes (we have his phone records). My attorney has no recollection of their phone call nor is he in his system. I know my x husband has called several attorney's trying to knock me out of retaining a good attorney. He never paid this attorney and didn't say enough to make his call memorable. My attorney is checking with his ethics council but just thought I'd ask here as well.
Probably not. Your appeals attorney know how to deal with this. Telephone call does not establish an attorney-client relationship if it is short and it's clear on the phone with the attorney is not committed to the representation
