Court proposes further amendments to attorney Disciplinary Rules.

The Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct, which defines proper conduct for attorneys in Texas, is still undergoing proposed amendments.   In April 2010 the Texas Supreme Court proposed some additional amendments to the Disciplinary Rules.  Prospective clients of an attorney may be particularly interested in proposed new Rule 1.17. Such proposed Rule provides in general, that when a prospective client in good faith discusses a legal matter with an attorney with the possibility of forming a client-lawyer relationship, then the lawyer is not to use or disclose any confidential information provided by the prospective client to the lawyer.  The proposed Rule provides further that a lawyer who receives confidential information from a prospective client (and any lawyer who is “affiliated” with the lawyer of the prospective client) is also prohibited from subsequently representing anyone with interests materially adverse to those of the prospective client.   If you would like to view an April 26, 2010 article from the Texas Lawyer which discusses other proposed amendments to the Disciplinary Rules click on: http://www.law.com/jsp/tx/PubArticleTX.jsp?id=1202450798968&src=EMC-Emai...
