My first column for the Town Crier involved a free latte. This one, oddly, concerns food, too. I recently received an inquiry from a client I last worked with in 2010. While I handle more than 100 cases per year and cannot remember all facts, names and faces, this client stood out.
Her car had a leaky sunroof that caused problems each time it was washed. An attorney in Southern California agreed to help her. The agreement she signed with him was onerous and bordered on unethical. He then promptly allowed her statute of limitations to expire, prior to telling her that he could not help her.
