I work as an attorney for a nonprofit corporation. The nonprofit corporation is headed by nonlawyers. I am paid a salary to represent persons facing immigration issues and persons facing Family Court issues. What are my duties and what are my issues of confidentiality?Samuel C. Stretton.
The question is an interesting one, and at times it has been raised by outside counsel who are assigned to represent insureds by an insurance company. Also, captive law firms working for insurance companies often face the same issues.
