Adhering to Legal Ethics Guidelines in Ridesharing Cases


Ethical responsibilities must take the highest priority when practicing law.

Prior to writing any winning arguments in motions or briefs, conducting depositions, or delivering any blistering cross-examinations, attorneys must make sure their actions comport with all relevant ethical obligations to both their clients and the profession generally. While there are few, if any, ethical rules that are truly unique to the practice of law in ridesharing cases, there are also no exceptions that are unique to ridesharing cases. The same rules apply to ridesharing cases that apply in any other context. This white paper will address some of the ethical rules that are of primary importance, including the duty of competence, preserving confidentiality, and protecting against conflicts of interest to ensure the duty of loyalty can always be met. Additionally, this paper will briefly explore some of the other ethical restrictions that lawyers face, which concern the use of ridesharing services.
