Touchy-Feely Lawyer, In Trouble for Being Touchy-Feely Lawyer!

The Legal Profession Blawg had another account of a Lawyer with a screw loose. A Springfield, Illinois attorney is in hot water with the Illinois disciplinary authorities for "overreaching" in the attorney-client relationship.  James Rodney Reppy is a personal injury and workers' compensation attorney. 

Reppy is in trouble because he was falling into pattern of calling up both male and femal clients of the firm and offering, er, um, ...other services.  In one situation he offered to perform certain oral services not related to argument or advocacy for a male client while the client's wife was listening on the speaker phone.  And in a second instance Reppy offered massotherapy to a female workers' compensation client along with gas money and cash.  Touchy-feely (illustration) attorneys are probably in the wrong profession. 

As I have said many times on Bad Lawyer, do not screw the client!

Post-script:  Reppy's law firm website connects itself to Abraham Lincoln,--this is very amusing to me.  Somehow I doubt that the attorney, Abraham Lincoln even with all of his prophetic skills could have envisioned  a day in which his name would be bandied about by a personal injury operation staffed by a perv.  Then again histories of Lincoln "riding circuit" as a lawyer--get pretty suggestive.
