I don't want to put his name out in public. But a few years ago he avoided disbarment in a case involving his possession of an illegal gun and drugs, in the courtroom!

He routinely represents strippers and openly barters services for their "services". Is that illegal? I thought barter of services is generally OK.

Barter for illegal things is generally not OK.

Don't know in Texas but barter in PA, even for legal things, is generally frowned upon.

Not if he didn't pay income taxes on it.

He handled a lot of prostitution cases too, so he likely got paid in blowjobs too.

We need a Lawyer's opinion here. Calling Birdman, calling Birdman.

If the sex is fully consensual and private, can a lawyer trade his services for a BJ from a client ( or other services ).

Note, we ain't talking Clarence Darrow or ethics here. Just if it's technically legal.

Trading sex for services is prostitution, just like trading sex for money. So, no, it's not legal.

In PA we are further prohibited from having sex with clients. We can have sex with them if we had sex with them prior to them becoming clients, but if we didn't have sex with them prior to them becoming clients then once they become clients we are not allowed to shtup.

Rule 1.8(j) A lawyer shall not have sexual relations with a client unless a consensual relationship existed
between them when the client-lawyer relationship commenced.

Sorry guys, but I don't really remember the guy's name. I heard it a few months back from another lawyer I know in Houston.

What if they fall in love?

My Buddy swears he falls in love with every stripper/client he represents.

Seems more likely that women with better earnings have more access to birth control than the other way around. But hey, wet streets cause rain.

So have sex with them and then determine whether to take their case? You know, to see if they'll work out as a client. Then not only do you avoid the ethics violation, it isn't prostitution either because they aren't guaranteed anything of value in return.

Edit: Plus it conforms with the always get paid upfront rule.

I think Attorney Google has answered my question.

Subpart C of the Texas relevant Texas code

Subpart (c)
Subpart (c) of Rule 1.13 has generated the most discussion. It provides: "A lawyer shall not have sexual relations with a client that the lawyer is personally representing unless the lawyer and client are married to each other, or are engaged in an ongoing sexual relationship that began before the representation."

This Rule is similar, but not identical to, ABA Model Rule 1.8(j), which provides that a lawyer "shall not have sexual relations with a client unless a consensual sexual relationship existed between them when the client-lawyer relationship commenced."
Many of the states that have rules prohibiting sexual relations between lawyers and clients have similar rules.

Under the proposed Texas rule, a lawyer may not have sexual relations with a client except in limited circumstances. Those limited circumstances are as follows:

a. The lawyer is married to a client.

b. The lawyer and the client are engaged in an on-going consensual sexual relationship that began before the representation. Compare with ABA 1.8(j) (a consensual sexual relationship).

But, the proposed Texas rule does not prohibit:

a. A sexual relationship with a former client (Proposed Rule 1.13. comment 5.);

b. A sexual relationship with a former prospective client if the lawyer has declined the representation (Proposed Rule 1.13. comment 5.);

c. A sexual relationship with a client of the lawyer's firm if the lawyer is not personally representing the client (4 Proposed Rule 1.13. comment 6.); or

d. A sexual relationship with the employee of a corporate client in certain circumstances (Proposed Rule 1.13, comment 7).

Whole lotta loopholes in Part C

Down here a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, attorney or not.

Dude, get a fucking clue.

Seriously, you and the five fuckwits of the CESS need to get a grip. Shit is out of control.
The aggressive pride in ignorance, malignant misogyny, feigned antipathy, and disregard of basic human decency schtick wore thin long ago.
