Abstract

Using Hitchcock's MacGuffin as a theme, I discuss the dynamics between client and lawyer when the client so obsesses over the issue driving him that he persuades (or attempts to persuade) the lawyer to do things that are inadvisable from the lawyer's point of view.

Keywords: lawyers, attorneys, legal ethics, professional responsibility, law and psychology, fees, reasonable fees, Hitchcock
