Don't Tell Clients Where You Live!

Did you see this about the Rockford attorney who it seems was gunned down in his own driveway by an unhappy client? Sad, sad story:

A Rockford lawyer slain while clearing snow outside his home may have been gunned down by a man he had represented in a criminal case, authorities said Friday.

Of course that's very similar to what happend to the patent lawyer at the Ogilvie Transportation Center downtown in '06.

In the Rockford case, my advice is never, never tell clients where you live. Who knows how the gunman there found the lawyer...but go to some means to protect that info. The Ogilvie case might be more scary...I mean we want people to know where and come to our offices right?
