In 2009 I hired an attorney for divorce proceedings and also asked about the possibility of child custody as my ex-wife had drug and alcohol problems. At this time, all the facts about this person - pretty ugly - and my children were presented to the attorney, as well as information about a person who had sexually abused my son (her boyfriend and drug supplier). Custody remained with the mother, now my children have been removed from her and are in foster care. She has hired the same attorney against me for the court case, again custody, trying to get the children back. WOULD THIS BE CONFLICT OF INTEREST?
