This Article examines how a lawyer may handle conflicts that arise when counseling clients on bioethics issues. Through an exploration of three standard client counseling models - authoritarian, client-centered and collaborative - the author presents suggestions on how to handle a conflict between the lawyer's own moral and religious values and the choices available to the client. The author suggests that lawyers are not barred from incorporating their own values as long as they communicate that decision to the client.
