It looks like you just need to create another relation to hook up the Lawyer table

Relation = New DataRelation("CASE_NUMBER_Lawyer", dsAddresses.Tables("Address").Columns("CASE_NUMBER"), dsAddresses.Tables("Lawyer").Columns("CASE_NUMBER"))

dsAddresses.Relations.Add(Relation)

You need 2 relations, one that connects address and registeredagent and a second one to connect Address to Lawyer


  'datatables repository
            Dim dsAddresses As DataSet = New DataSet
            Dim Relation As DataRelation
 
            'Create the Address datatable
            dsAddresses.Tables.Add(GetAddress(Case_Number))
            dsAddresses.Tables(0).TableName = "Address"
 
            'Create Registered Agent Datatable
            dsAddresses.Tables.Add(GetRegisteredAgent(Case_Number))
            dsAddresses.Tables(1).TableName = "RegisterAgent"
 
            'Create Lawyer Datatable
            dsAddresses.Tables.Add(GetAttorney(Case_Number))
            dsAddresses.Tables(2).TableName = "Lawyer"
 
            'create relation betwen Address and Registered Agent tables
            Relation = New DataRelation("CASE_NUMBER", dsAddresses.Tables("Address").Columns("CASE_NUMBER"), dsAddresses.Tables("RegisterAgent").Columns("CASE_NUMBER"))
            dsAddresses.Relations.Add(Relation)
 
'creates relation between address and lawyer tables 
Relation = New DataRelation("CASE_NUMBER_Lawyer", dsAddresses.Tables("Address").Columns("CASE_NUMBER"), dsAddresses.Tables("Lawyer").Columns("CASE_NUMBER"))
dsAddresses.Relations.Add(Relation)
 
            'return the datatables repository
            Return dsAddresses
