State Bar of Arizona Ethics Opinions

89-02: Fees
4/1989

An attorney may represent an indigent client on a contingency fee basis in a post-decree action to recover property not divided during the marriage dissolution proceeding only where the action involves property claim separate from alimony and child support issues; this type of fee arrangement should be considered a last resort to allow representation to a party otherwise unable to afford competent legal counsel.
