Legal Ethics Opinion 1864 Revised
The Virginia State Bar’s Standing Committee on Legal Ethics has issued the following correction to LEO 1864:
Except for the last paragraph of the discovery agreement, referring to “certain sensitive materials,” the agreement does not raise any concern as to the defense lawyer’s compliance with Rule 1.16(e), as it explicitly provides that the lawyer will make the discovery materials a part of his file and furnish those materials to his client upon termination of the representation.
