13. Lawyers who sue Lawyers

From the Malpractice Lawyers Network, “lawyers who sue attorneys, accountants and fiduciaries”:

Rule 3.3 of the ABA Rules of Professional Conduct says lawyers “shall not knowingly” make false statements to a court or offer evidence that the lawyer knows to be false. The latter means even if the lawyer doesn’t lie, he cannot let his client lie either.

Rule 3.4 says that “a lawyer shall not… falsify evidence, counsel or assist a witness to testify falsely, or offer an inducement to a witness that is prohibited by law…”

Finally, Rule 4.1 says, “In the course of representing a client a lawyer shall not knowingly:
(a) make a false statement of material fact or law to a third person…”
