Lawyers and Friends

Can a lawyer advise his friends? Of course he can, although sometimes it will lead to drama. Although Scott's post deals with the lawyer aspect of the lawyer-friend/lawyer-client relationship, one has to judge Joel harshly. If a friend is fronting or loaning me legal fees, and he just asks me to shut the fuck up and stop making his life difficult, then that's what I do. Not just as a client, but as a friend. Joel's lawyer didn't handle the legal contract well, but Joel definitively broke the social contract of friendship.
