I see that a former client has pleaded guilty to a pair of felonies for an "only in Utah" scam. I represented him a number of years ago in a business dispute. He was also trying to get some kind of mining company off the ground. Our politics were quite different, which thoroughly upset him, so he ended up getting a different attorney. Over the next few years, I saw his mining company being praised in the local media. I reached out a couple of times to congratulate him and see what he was up to, but he never responded. I guess now I know what he was up to. It's a rare attorney whose clients tell him everything, and probably a miserable one too. And by the way, just because someone is being praised in what passes for the news media around here, it doesn't mean he isn't a total fraud.
