of an attorney going into business with his clients, and also restrictions on taking contingency matters, why would the attorney even be interested? It sounds like he takes all the risk and
you get all the gain. You even want him to pay the back taxes? If the deal bombs, there are no proceeds
so he not only doesn’t get paid, he loses money. If the deal is profitable he gets no upside whatsoever, merely gets paid back his money and his fee. How can he resist this deal?
