Do you suspect the the same lawyer represented both your friend and the opposing party in the same court case?
I suspect it. But, My friend who was on trial seems certain of it. So I'm in need of the court document(s) related to that trial that displays the lawyer's name.
Each attorney would file a notice of appearance for each party that they represent.
So you can visit the courthouse and the clerk of the court would be able to provide you with the case file, so you can review it.
Does that make sense?
Can that notice of appearance be obtained from the court clerk?
You can go to the courthouse and request the entire court file for your review.
Generally, the same attorney would never be able to legally represent opposing parties, due to the obvious conflict of interest.
That's true, but, by reviewing the notice of appearance, this will clear things up, 1) it will prove that my friend is wrong, or 2) my friend is right
