Legal Question

Asked on: 6/09/13, 2:31 pm

i represented myself in a law suit as a planitiff recently.

the defendant's attorney gave me legal advice and her opinions on a lot of matters that influenced my decision to settle.

once the case was settled i discovered that what the attorney told me was not true.

My question is:

Is it legal for an opposing attorney to offer advice and legal advice to the opposing party i.e. me that influences the outcome of the case.
