How can a lawyer be deceptive?
There are few things more revolting than an attorney who intentionally deceives or seeks to harm his clients. Unfortunately, more attorneys do this than we’d like to think. Some examples of deceptive attorney behavior can include the following:
- Selling, distributing, procuring, or obtaining any type of property to further a scheme.
- Using false representations or classifications of geographic origin services.
- Falsely stating or promoting that the attorney’s services have sponsorship, approval, or benefits that they simply do not have. For instance, when an attorney tells you he or she “knows the judge” or makes a definite statement that you will win your case, there is a very good chance he or she is engaging in some form of legal malpractice.
- Making declarations or publishing advertisements that are generally deceptive, misleading, or flat-out untruthful regarding the sponsorship, approval, or certification of the attorney’s legal services
- Being untruthful about how much their legal services will cost
- Contriving to unlawfully or deceptively take money or property from clients
- Sending out unsolicited invoices, billing statements, or any other document that demands clients pay for services of which they did not receive.
