When using a reflexive verb and an indirect object pronoun in French, would the reflexive object or indirect object come first?
For example, I identify with them:
Je me leur identifie
Je leur me identifie

je m'identifie à eux
is correct, as Fabrice stated. It needs a preposition, which none of your two examples gave.
À is used in this case NOT avec.
You shouldn't say:
Je m'indentifie avec eux.
French translation: je m'identifie à eux. I don't think there is any other possible.
It depends. It's not a matter of relative vs indirect, but the actual pronouns themselves.
Whether reflexive or indirect, me, te, se, nous, and vous always go first. Lui and leur always go last.
Edited: learn something new every day. The word order above is correct, but you can't say je me leur ..., it always changes to je me ... à eux.
