Dear Mr. Boggs,
I am a 30 year malpractice attorney... and I cannot imagine a more intrusive and wasteful pretense than judicial oversight of every
malpractice retainer agreement between an attorney and her client (other than spousal consent for pregnancy termination perhaps). Each time a client goes before the court, which takes time, judicial resources, and hence taxpayer money.... they would be prepared to answer the questions to the satisfaction of the court... or they would not even attend the hearing!! What would be achieved?
