Stupid lawyer tricks, part n

From the Attorney e-Newsletter of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania's Disciplinary Board's March 2010 issue:

Also, 12 attorneys paid their annual fees with checks marked as drawn on a trust or escrow account, prompting an immediate inquiry from Disciplinary Counsel.[2] Eighty-seven paid with checks drawn on insufficient funds; four of which were still outstanding at press time. Not smart.

And footnote 2 itself is classic:  "[2] The ethical equivalent of a 'Please kick me' sign."

Couldn't make this stuff up if we tried.  Hat tip to my buddy Scott Unger for this one.

True credit for the quality and readability of the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board's e-newsletter goes to its editor, Ed Frownfelter, whose tireless efforts keep it timely and interesting!
