Madoff’s Lawyer Sorkin May Have Conflict Over Family Investment
By Erik Larson
February 13, 2009

The potential conflict can be waived “if Sorkin explains fully to Madoff the disadvantages of his representation, which include that, even unconsciously, he might not be as zealous or effective as he might otherwise be,” said Monroe Freedman, a legal ethics professor at Hofstra University Law School in Hempstead, New York.

Sorkin’s name and those of his parents appeared among thousands of Madoff customers on a 162-page list filed Dec. 4 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan, where Madoff’s investment advisory firm is being liquidated.
