And in the case of my wife it would possibly inflame the situation I believe. And create possible conflicts where none really exist.

You can discuss it with the insurer and the suggested legal counsel involved.
In a case involving my brother and his wife, they did have just one lawyer and the insurer paid all fees.

Using one lawyer is not a good idea!
