Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Is it correct for a lawyer to solicite the use of the strategy that lists assets that are not there, to set a "prove that the assets are not there" to get the other party to participate and then when the party does, lawyer determines it is too late and continues to keep the "sold" items as listed assets, inflating the value of the case and speak to a client about a bonus?


 


 

No. It can go only to actually existing joint property, because only this can be divided.

A fee agreement (bonus) with the client is possible.
