It's only February and we already have a strong candidate for Worst Lawyer Soundbite of 2015. It's an Arizona lawyer who became embroiled in an angry email exchange with a potential client who decided not to hire him. According to coverage in the ABA Journal, the lawyer threatened to bring suit over a fee dispute and then wrote: "I look forward to the many nights and mornings when you think of my name and squeal—you mean nothing to me. Check out the movie Deliverance.”
Unfortunately, it is the lawyer who ended up squealing an apology to the Arizona Supreme Court, which put him on probation for a year and ordered him to attend anger management counseling.
So once again we are taking nominations for Worst Lawyer Soundbite of the Year -- but it will be hard to top this one.
