Supreme Court Suspends Lawyer Who Accepted Oral Sex as a Fee

Att'y: Would you like to go to Space Mountain?

Sexy Client: Oh, fuck off.

Att'y: Well, I guess a blow job would really be out of the question then?

According to the Pa. Supreme Court, it is. They just suspended a Bucks County lawyer for a year for accepting about three or four of them from a client in a DUI case.

So... This means it is wrong?

Damn. That really puts a damper on my work to help unwed mothers.

Sorry. If you're not a lawyer, knock yourself out.

Bill Clinton approved troop movements and negotiated with Yeltsin while getting his knob slobbed. He was a helluva multi-tasker and a pretty good president. Payment takes many forms. As long as the adults consented, what's the problem? The cost of a legal bj in Nevada could cover a billable half hour. Is it wrong to accept slate repairs as payment from one's roofer client? Our government hates barter because they can't automatically tax the transaction.

Anon 301 your last sentence hit the nail on the head, it all comes back to taxes.

Consenting adults, and she had a choice to go to the public defenders office for free representation. No harm no foul.

3:01,

"The relationship between lawyer and client is a fiduciary one in which the lawyer occupies the highest position of trust and
confidence. The relationship is almost always unequal; thus, a sexual relationship between a lawyer and client can involve
unfair exploitation of the lawyer's
fiduciary role, in violation of the lawyer's basic ethical obligation not to use the trust of the client to the client's disadvantage. In addition, such a relationship presents a significant danger that, because of the lawyer's emotional
involvement, the lawyer will be unable to represent the client without impairment of the exercise of independent professional
judgment."

This is a note from the Disciplinary Rule in question.

Bill Clinton did not impale. It was just a rub and a tug. These judges sound jealous they're not getting bobo honked after watching crooks get off all day.

I skimmed the attached file and as far as I can tell the only policies he actually violated were not providing his fee for service in writing and engaging in a new sexual relationship with a client. It makes it seem as though had he already been in a sexual relationship with the client and provided her with his fee for service in writing his actions would have been acceptable. I am no lawyer but that is what I get out of the document.

Don't most attorneys screw their clients? I thought it was part of the job.

Bern Bear, I have an ongoing legal issue and am still without a lawyer. Does Orloski need any nude gardening or housekeeping in exchange for his services? I just got a full brazilian and my buns are firmer than ever after a 3 week stay in County with the manslab tenderising my starfish.

Can I say that my favorite part was that they fixate on the fact that he didn't have an engagement letter. Would his conduct have been that much better if he had given her a written letter that said she would perform oral sex on him at every consultation.

NorCo Twink,

What do you think I'm doing?

Back in the day playing numbers was illegal. Now the states couldn't exist without it. Please support the legalization of marijuana by voting for John Hangor our next governor.

How do you think Gregory gets all those vegetables in prison. Also the cheapest protein shake in town.

I don't think that is what he meant when Gregory said he got to toss his cellmates salad.

I'm real curious to know how this "crime" came to light. Either he blabbed to a fellow attorney, he pissed her off somehow and she complained to the disciplinary board, or his paralegal heard the "happy endings" behind the locked door.

Apparently if he wanted to do this he should have sent her an engagement letter. Then represented her, and after the trial he could have written off the fees and later accepted the favors off the record.
