Attorney@Work: “Lawyers, their staff and even judges are vulnerable at courthouses, law offices and their homes. Here’s what to do if you receive a threat. America is a violent country, and lawyers have not been spared. In 2023, a Florida lawyer who represented medical office workers was killed by the opposing party, a plastic surgeon. In 2022, a North Carolina lawyer was killed by his client at the conclusion of a mediation in the victim’s office. In 2021, a Georgia man killed his ex-wife’s divorce lawyer and set fire to the law office because the court had ordered the murderer to pay his ex-wife’s legal fees.
