When dissecting consequences of exercising poor professional judgment, it is important to determine where to establish a line in the sand beyond which individuals should not be willing to yield. Examples abound from lawyer’s hiding their sexual affairs from clients; a spurned lawyer smearing the reputation of an ex-intern, to yet another attorney who was disbarred for stealing from his client to feed his own drug habit. Additional violations of MR 8.4 (Misconduct) include sexting a vulnerable client; a former military lawyer who was disbarred for leaking Gitmo details, to a title insurer’s in-house attorney who was disbarred after secretly sending work to another firm. Learning from others’ mistakes also present opportunities to reinforce costly pitfalls resulting in poor judgment and attending consequences.
