Not exactly the kind of attitude most clients want their employment law attorney to have.  More after the break.

According to Law.com, a former equity partner in the Los Angeles office of Seyfarth Shaw, a large national employment law firm, has filed suit against the firm.  The suit alleges that the attorney was improperly demoted by the firm because of his role in representing a former client who won a $30 million malpractice verdict against the firm.  The interesting quote comes at the end of the article from an alleged email written by the managing partner of the Los Angeles office “urging partners in December 2008 to bolster their fee collection efforts by ‘prying cash out of our clients’ hands.’ “

Ouch.
