As Scott Greenfield noted at Simple Justice in Rusty Hardin Wrongly Maligned For Roger Clemens, “Clemens knew the risks and chose to talk. There’s a limit to what a lawyer can do,” as in there’s a professional obligation to abide by the decisions of yoru client even if you know they’re making a monumentally stupid decision. The lawyer’s job is to advice; as long as the client’s mentally competent, it’s the client’s call.

You’ve got to think the lawyer for this woman just wanted to strangle her when they saw this -

Ordinarily, lawyers spend most of their time counseling clients to keep their mouths shut about their cases. Walsh-Smith did just the opposite, venting about her ex in a professionally produced video that she posted here on YouTube. Among other things, Walsh-Smith revealed details about her sex life (or apparent lack thereof) in the video and claimed that her ex failed to comply with the terms of the pre-nup that he’d had her sign. When I last checked the video, 144,000 people had already viewed it.
