Great reminder from Lawyerist on the dangers of the bad client.
Bad clients do more than just not pay you, they can sap your very soul. Taking bad cases and dealing with bad clients is especially a problem for attorneys who may be new or struggling, but it’s a problem that can compound itself, coming back to result in terrible results.
Just don’t do it.
Save yourself the aggravation and bad times of dealing with the bad client and case and put the time you could have used on that nightmare to a better use: networking, getting good clients, even doing non-legal things.
