Possible Conflict?

I met with a grandmother who was driving her several grandkids when she was involved in a wreck. She was not at fault for the wreck. She and the kids were all injured. Can I represent them all?

Answer:
The minors cannot waive any conflict because they are minors. It appears to me there is a clear conflict. What are you going to do if it turns out there is inadequate aggregate coverage to fully pay all the claims and you end up having to split up inadequate limits among the 3 grandkids and maybe grandma. How are you going to negotiate with yourself over how much to allocate to kid A, how much to kid B and how much to kid C? I wouldn't think about doing this without getting holy water sprinkled on the issue by the Bar Ethics Counsel.

There's another conflict problem you haven't mentioned. You mention that your minor clients have "substantial injuries." What are you going to do if it turns out there Is inadequate aggregate coverage to fully pay all the claims and you end up having to split up inadequate limits among the 3 grandkids and maybe grandma. How are you going to negotiate with yourself over how much to allocate to kid A, how much to kid B and how much to kid C?
