Seeking legal opinion is a one-time engagement. On each occasion he would have given the opinion based on the facts and circumstances disclosed to him.

Show the documents to another local prudent lawyer for better appreciation of facts and professional advise.

Even if the lawyer genuinely believes that A, the property seller, has a clear title as per his examination of the documents, there is nothing wrong on his part to take up the Vakalath of the other party.

He has every right to serve as a lawyer for the other party and send notice to A. There is nothing unethical in it.

The lawyer can argue the points what the other party wants him to speak in the court. The lawyer is only a learned professional performing just as a tool on behalf of the party.

Even though lawyers give some expert opinion, it is the court that has the authority to decide on such issues if some other party challenges the ownership in the court.
