For The Love Of Process: A Hearing Before Getting Screwed

• Simple Justice
A defendant arrives to retain legal services, having more than sufficient assets to hire counsel of choice. A deal is struck and a check is written. Counsel gears up, ready to use everything in his power to defend his client, then poof, the check bounces. Not for insufficient funds. Not because the defendant stops payment. Nope. Because the government has obtained a restraining order freezing the defendant’s assets.
