Bradley Partner Paul Bolus Quoted in Law360 on Evaluating Prospective Clients
Bradley attorney Paul Bolus was quoted in Law360 on evaluating prospective clients and spotting potential “red flags.” During the screening process, lawyers should be wary of a client who is on his third or fourth attorney, as it could indicate an unwillingness to pay or possible ethical issues.
"It's certainly a red flag," explained Bolus. "The best thing to do is call the previous counsel — don't just take the client's word for it because there could be an issue with bills or something that they aren't telling you, [such as] asking you to take a position on a case that you're not sure is ethical."
