Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
A possible question of ethics always exists when an attorney participates in a legal matter in which he has a personal interest; however, the preparation and supervision of a deed signing by a family member where he is one grantee, isn't unethical in and of itself. The surrounding circumstances have to be considered. The exercise of undue influence would be a serious ethical breach though.
