Description

What are the halachic and legal pitfalls in advising a client who insists on a particular path, such as litigating instead of settling? How do we evaluate people whose risk-tolerance may reflect incapacity? May a lawyer withdraw from representing a risk-tolerant client who rejects a lawyer's more cautious approach?
