Question Presented: 

 

A part-time city attorney, village attorney, or other member of his or her firm are not automatically prohibited from accepting guardian ad litem appointments in juvenile court proceedings involving abuse and neglect, truancy or other behavioral issues as long as there are no special circumstances giving rise to a conflict of interest under the rules of professional conduct.

While each case must be evaluated on its own facts, particular care should be exercised when the juvenile proceedings originate within the city or village represented by the firm.
