Customer Question

I broke up with my ex-girlfriend and started dating a lawyer lady....well i wasnt comfortable dating anyone else so I told the lawyer lady i wanted to be friends. My ex called my back and wanted to get back together. So we did. I was friends with the lawyer as well but not intimate. Well my ex got mad when she found out that I had slept this lawyer lady when we were not together. She called her and they talked. They both got mad and now my ex wants to use this lawyer to sue me in court for some money she says I owe her. Isn't having a intimate relationship with the lawyer and her client make it a conflict of interest?

Clear conflict of interest. No doubt about it. Politely tell the lawyer that if she does it, you will have no choice to report her to the state bar:
