"His conduct brought physical injury to his client and also injured the public by lessening people's faith and confidence in the legal profession."

I think I can speak for the public when I say this doesn't really hurt that much.

That's more of a 1L thing. :/

I thought that was how you got into law school.....

So the third year is prime peanut butter jelly time?

Sounds about right....

This guy got off light. Even with no criminal history, I'm pretty sure I'd be in jail for a long time if I did the same thing....

Somehow, I don't think a few anger management classes are going to help this guy.

No doubt. You or I get assault with a deadly weapon and hard time. He gets a 5 year ban on practicing law and no jail time, even with his rap sheet full of violent crimes.
 
Ehh

First year, clients, second year, witnesses, third year, opposing counsel.

3rd year. Alternative dispute resolution.

Considering what pains in the ass some clients are, it should be covered in the first year. It's a hell of a lot more important to learn about that than it is to learn about the rule against perpetuities or to read Pennoyer v. Neff.

FTFA: "Robinson chased the man, David L. Gump, down the street and used the bat to pummel him in the head, chest and back when he fell to the ground.

Not sure, but how about the beating incompetent secretaries class?

I'm here to dispute some charges on this bill my lawyer sent me.

Yes sir. What items do you have a concern about?

I was billed 32 hours for RT. What's that?

Research Time. That's the time the lawyer spent doing research. It can be research done from the office or research down at the library. Thirty two hours is pretty common.

Okay. But what about this item? One hour, HBBB - $75?

Oh that's Horrific Baseball Bat beating. You would certainly be present for this.

Well, yes I was but I don't believe he beat me for an entire hour. I might be wrong. Seems I may have passed out after 5 or ten minutes. The beating was pretty horrific.

And that's why you got the HBBB rate, sir. Be assured. If you got billed for an entire hour of horrific Baseball Bat Beating, you were beaten for an entire hour. Do you have any other questions about your bill sir?

Yes I do but at this point, I don't feel like pressing the issue further.

Sergeant Major: Quite right. This bit has gone on too far now. Off you go now. Out. Out. You at the desk. Get back to work now.

My m-i-l is a paralegal, and I'm sure she has fantasized about this with some of their clients.
 
2012-11-02 01:58:04 PM  
typically 2L year, though some places it's 3L. My professor really stressed to me the importance of having written fee agreements with detailed consequences for breach, non payment, etc. What he really got disbarred for was failing to write the beating with baseball bat into the fee dispute resolution portion of his client engagement contract.

Actually, that might be a pretty nifty clause to start slipping into some of the financial arrangements I set up between doctors and patients. Thanks for the tip.

If you can't beat the charges, beat the client

You don't know how many times I have fantasized about doing this to clients. One client in particular.
