because most the clients are thieving bas** tards anyway. They are liars and scum which is why they hired you to begin with: to either get them out of legal trouble, or to further enable their nefarious schemes. In my mind, it's like stealing from pimps and drug dealers (somtimes literally). Therefore, no f***ks given.

Nah. Not worth being dis barred (meh, Id be fine with that) and (MORE importantly) destroyed permanently in your community.

Any of us in white hicksville with the nerve to go beyond the 8th grade are punished: duty to help Cleetus, duty to take high road to help Muuuh Cuuuntry morons, duty to pay outlandish property taxes for being in the middle of nowhere.

My buddy in Lake County MN (look that up..) is paying $4,000 a year—the Educated Man Tax as it were. Lost his appeal. Cleetus next door on a similar lot? $967. Only difference is .10 an acre and 200 square feet.

I told him next time take it to Court. OP has suffered decades of strife from south Illinois rubes.

Median income in his town is $32,500 HOUSEHOLD. His household income is unknown but he isn’t earning over $20/hr. What is the median income in your town?

Stop explaining away crooked rural white trash county commissions. You are out of your league here. Only OP and I are competent in northern/Midwestern rural graft.

All attorneys I've seen who stole settlements were having financial problems at the time. Makes me wonder how many do it and never get caught.

Alcohol/drug/gambling addiction and/or a spouse with health problems is about 90% of attorneys who steal from clients. It’s rarely clear cut venality.

I’d caveat that: 90% of those who get CAUGHT. I read the disciplinary logs in my states. They always get caught when the theft or commingling gets to outlandish levels.
