Lawyers ethics, South Australia, My question relates to my

Customer Question

Hi
JA: Hi. What is your issue regarding?
Customer: Lawyers ethics
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: South Australia
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: My question relates to my brother's first lawyer. He was not able to pay his lawyers bills. and now this lawyer and my brother's ex have taken my brother to court to pay the bills and for him to sell the house. in fact the judge has made it that only the ex can now sell the house. there was a meeting today and this lawyer said that the money should go only to the ex and him! Is it ethical for a lawyer to get friendly with the ex when he is representing the other person!
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: There is a lot more but this covers the primary question on lawyers ethics, morals and where to go from here?

Hello
There must be far more to this story.

There is a massive conflict for his solicitor to assist the other side, so I need to ask what the situation with respect of court.

I suggest there would be some order sought previously whereby if something was not to occur, then the ex obtains the money for the sale of the home and for some proceeds covered to pay his legal bill by a cost agreement entered into previously.
