Sexual Relations with Clients...

Informative piece here about the above and some "difficulty" lawyers have faced from our friends at ARDC when they've engaged in such contact with clients. Ahh, and most of the cases involve domestic relations cases...our primary practice area.

Illinois does not have a specific rule prohibiting sexual relations with clients that many states have. Most of the lawyer complaints here come under rule 1.7(b) which prohibits representation when representation would be limited by the lawyer's own interests.

My $.02...just say no. If there are "sparks" with a client, hey that's more motivation to get that case settled quick!

What about when you represent yourself?

Oh, stop it! I'm bad.
