I’ve covered bad judges and bad attorneys before. A few people have asked if I have ever seen a bad client. Sure! So here are what I consider the three most entertaining of those clients that I can describe - and one more bad attorney thrown in just for fun.

Obviously, I cannot tell you any stories where I would breach the trust of my clients - but I can tell you about things which happened in public and/or open court. (Yes, that means I have a few stories I’d love to be able to tell you but I can’t - every attorney has those.)

And the bad attorney as a bonus? I completely forgot the best one. An attorney I dealt with who is in prison now for trying to hire someone to kill another attorney (not me). I couldn’t make up stories this good.

I also now have copies of Preston Tucker and His Battle to Build the Car of Tomorrow in hand. They retail for $27.99. If you want one signed by me for $24 (postage paid) email me directly and I will invoice you via Square. While supplies last, etc etc. Lehto@kennon.com


And the car at the top is just sad. Very sad.

This website may supply general information about the law but it is for informational purposes only. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
