With tongue, I believe, firmly inserted in cheek, Dan Hull at What About Clients? shares some advice on how to treat clients (allegedly attributed to an unknown lawyer – circa 1836) that he learned about from an “unreliable but wise childhood friend.”
I endorse the idea of “unreliable” in terms of his friend’s claim of origin. But, I love the comments because as Carol Burnett said “Comedy is tragedy, plus time,” and hopefully the “advice” is recognized as the antithesis of how good lawyers treat their clients.
Without further comment I recommend you read Dan’s post and promise me that as you do so you’ll laugh uproariously as proof that you would never commit such deadly sins.
