Go ahead, but a personal relationship that commenced after the professional relationship ended shouldn't be any cause for discipline.

By the way, if he was YOUR attorney why was he representing your wife?

And why did they tell you?
After all, you were divorced.

There is no dispute about the facts, but is that legal or ethical of the attorney? Could he be disciplined by the BAR for that?
why do you care

Alright, if it was your attorney who screwed your ex-wife and it was during the representation, that is pretty bad. If he screwed her before he represented you, it probably ended on a bad note and didn't hurt you at all. If it was after he represented you, it isn't your business.

If it was her attorney and he was collecting a "couch fee" for services, he is just a POS and you really shouldn't worry about it. It didn't give her any strategic advantage. Any attorney that takes a couch fee isn't that great an attorney to begin with. I'll take my hourly fee rather than a roll in the hay every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Full disclosure: I don't do family law. I charge flat fee, not hourly. I practice criminal defense. Any criminal defense attorney who takes a couch fee is going to wind up without a law license and a scorching case of something.

Really? After all these months I don't think anyone, especially the OP, cares.

Well I care!

I just was sent to this discussion from Google search.
And the issue discussed is just exactly what I was searching for.
Just FYI

It might not be illegal but it is certainly unethical.

The discussion is over and done with. These extraneous comments that people are making are meaningless and contribute nothing.
