Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can I hire a attorney to represent my son in a criminal case and still be considered the client?
No, unfortunately if the attorney is representing your son, then son is the client, regardless of who is paying for the attorney's services. The attorney only has a duty to the client and couldn't even discuss the case with you unless son allowed him to do so because his duty of confidentiality it to his client.
But as long as son tells the attorney to make everything available to you, then he has to do so.
