The Case of the Sequaciously Servile Lawyer

Posted on January 4, 2012. Filed under: Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney, The Practice of Law |

“Butler-style” representation, under which the sequaciously servile lawyer does whatever the client wants and then cites that client’s command as a shield to the improper actions has no place in bankruptcy court or in any court.”

The above alliterative quote is taken from a recent bankruptcy court case in Nevada, In Re Blue Pine Group, Inc., and it points out the responsibility that a bankruptcy attorney has not only to his or her client, but to the court.

In rare cases, if the attorney and client can not agree on a course of action, and the attorney knows that course of action to be ethically improper or legally wrong, then it may be necessary for the attorney to withdraw from representation of the client.  Most judges that I have practiced in front of understand that these situations do occur, and when explained properly, will allow the attorney to withdraw.
