Better call an ethics lawyer – S1E2 – Mijo

As a general rule, I avoid shows that focus on lawyers. I guess I prefer to watch shows that totally distort how other people do their jobs.

Does a lawyer’s duty to his client include protection from angry ghosts roaming the halls of the law firm?  This ethical question has haunted lawyers for hundreds of years.

The issue has been raised as a result of allegations by an injured client at a Santiago, Chile law firm.

The story, reported by multiple sources, including the Daily Mail.  You can see the video there and judge the event for yourself.

According to the story, the victim now fears that the ghost is out to get her.  She has a ghost stalker.

No news yet on whether there will be litigation.  If there is, should it be a premises liability claim or a breach of fiduciary duty?
