Question Presented: 

 

Where a Nebraska attorney, at the request of and on behalf of his client, contacts another attorney relative to the registration of a foreign judgment, the Nebraska attorney has no personal responsibility for payment of the other attorney's fees absent an agreement to assume such responsibility.

It would not be ethically proper for the Nebraska attorney to sue his client on behalf of the other attorney to collect the latter's unpaid legal fee.
