I think these were really all money-theft cases.

I have never known an attorney to steal a sledge hammer, grubbing hoe, or steel toed shoes from a client.

It has probably happened, though.  Yet the point I was trying to make was that these weren’t really “client-theft” cases.  He didn’t steal any clients.

Sorry, I missed the original pun.

If he needs to steal some clients, I have several I would pay him to take.
