Beg, borrow, steal?

/ 01.Aug, 2011

We have written before on the dangers of “easy money” for lawyers.  This morning’s paper brings news of another lawyer facing fraud charges for accepting money from a Philadelphia City program to expand his business, using the money for personal purposes, and then not paying the money back.

A significant tip for malpractice avoidance is to remember that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Easy money is generally a myth, and most schemes which generate “easy money” generate equal amounts of trouble.
