Can One Divorce Lawyer Represent Us Both?

By Michael H. Gazin

Michael H. Gazin, a family lawyer in Newport Beach, answers:

No. A divorce lawyer can only represent and advocate for one of the parties. It would be a conflict of interest for one attorney to represent both parties in a marital dissolution action. However, one attorney can act as a mediator for both parties. In the mediator capacity, the attorney is not the advocate for either party, but serves in a neutral capacity to help guide the parties to a resolution of the issues in their case.
