I posted the following in the wrong thread initially...
Not to throw a curve ball or anything, but at my first summer position I did research to force an 80+ year old women to undergo ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), and research to take money from Mother Theresa. Now I'm conducting the investigation to have a lady declared legally incompetent.
So I agree that lawyers often advocate for positions they don't agree with.
My first summer position I did research to force a 80+ year old women to undergo ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), and research to take money from Mother Theresa, both successfully. Now I'm conducting the investigation to have a lady declared legally incompetent.
The 80 year old women was so depressed that she stopped eating and the ECT snapped her out of it. That or just getting a decent meal at a hospital rather than the crap she ate at a public nursing home. I'd guess the latter. Quote "I don't remember the last time I had grapes! and melon!, and cottage cheese!"
Mother Theresa was named as a remainder beneficiary in a trust where our client was the primary beneficiary. Our client is 50 and living in a community home and the cost was extensive. We wanted to shelter her funds (including the trust) so that the home would give her a break and so she could begin receiving government benefits. But that would mean cutting out Mother Theresa. It really didn’t matter because the trust was so small that our client would have to die suddenly for there to be any money left for Mother Theresa anyway. So I proceeded to point out that Mother Theresa is dead and our client is very much alive.
The alleged incompetent lady is crazy as a loon. I mean she has $200k stashed away and she lived without a functioning toilet or toilet paper, among other things. I believe she has been exploited as well. You better believe I’m not shaking her left hand.
Socially I don’t agree with what I’m doing, but for these clients bending the rules is beneficial. So my moral compass is changing, but I knew it would.
