Originally appeared in print as Struggling, Patton Boggs Drags Nonpaying Clients into Court

What's being said

  • Lawyer Independece Project, by Nick Thomas

    As an organization devoted to the proposition that actual psychological and financial independence should be at the heart of every lawyer?s practice, I can only ask the following:
    Who was responsible for accepting representation of the non-paying clients?
    And who let the bills grow into the six figure range without addressing the issue?
    No independent lawyer would behave this way. So the problem obviously exists somewhere in the firm structure.
