85. I literally just answered that question

 

"If you want a lawyer for an expert consultation and independent review on whether you appropriately handled a criminal matter, you do not hire a divorce lawyer."

If your client dies due, in part, to circumstances for which you advocated on that client's behalf, then it would behoove you to hire another specialist in that area to conduct a review of your work. The relevant area here being criminal defense work.

I don't know how to put it to you any simpler than:

"If you want a lawyer for an expert consultation and independent review on whether you appropriately handled a criminal matter, you do not hire a divorce lawyer."

You do not hire a dentist. You do not hire a pet groomer. You do not hire a patent lawyer. You hire a criminal defense lawyer.

Any specialist attorney in any field does two things: 1. Practices in that field, and 2. Does opinion work on malpractice claims in that field. For example, I'm a patent attorney. I have represented clients in patent work and I have also worked for other attorneys seeking opinions on malpractice of other patent attorneys. That kind of work comes up in billing disputes in addition to straight-up malpractice claims.

So, it could also be the case that they may need an independent opinion when it comes time to bill the estate for their time and expenses, if any, not covered by any retainer they may have already obtained. The nice part is that they can bill that too, as an expense.

Of course, they should have hired the bestest attorney in the world, Michael Avenatti. Because I heard a rumor that the reason Epstein killed himself is that he found out that Avenatti was going to be his lawyer.
