02-04 This Opinion addresses a series of inquiries about handling client trust funds.

02-03 One law firm attorney may engage in lobbying activities on specific and
particular issues before the state legislature on behalf of the firm's clients while a second attorney in the same firm serves as an elected member of the legislature if the lawyer-legislator does not participate in any aspect of legislation as to which the lawyer-lobbyist is representing the interests of the firm's clients.

02-02 If a law firm uses a nonlawyer (here, an independent paralegal service)
to assist it in providing legal services to its clients, and other law firms use the same nonlawyer, will conflicts of interest be imputed between the nonlawyer and the law firms?
