During my divorce I believe that my ex husbands attorney lied and the state is doing an investigation. This attorney is communicating with my ex

More details to this question:
If I decided to take my husband back to court, the attorney is telling him exactly what is going on. Is this a conflict of interest? This is hurting my case if I take him back to court because of the lying. Is this ethical for the attorney to be disclosing everything that the State Board is sending to her and me.

If it is your ex-husband's attorney, then the attorney has a right to commuinicate with your ex-husband.

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
