2009AP2007-D OLR v. Torvinen

Professional Responsibility

Where attorney Kyle H. Torvinen carefully considered whether a conflict of interest existed in his representation of a client, and ultimately did withdraw from representation, the misconduct claim against him is dismissed.

“We agree with the referee that Attorney Torvinen exercised sensitive professional and moral judgment, and maintained a professional, courteous and civil attitude toward all parties involved in the parking lot dispute. Attorney Torvinen and his law firm spent a great deal of time discussing whether a conflict of interest existed. They concluded there was no conflict.

Ultimately, Attorney Torvinen and his firm did withdraw from representing Lange/Laughlin and assisted them in finding substitute counsel.”
