In these days of clients suing their lawyers (and screaming at, and even occasionally shooting at, them), I guess it's nice to see a client totally believing in their attorney, even after the attorney allegedly bills "grossly excessive" amounts to defend a seemingly simple case of "You sold me a house after painting over the mold."
There were lots of things that might have shaken Michael Behnke's confidence in the lawyers at English & Gloven here in San Diego. The fees charged. The fact that the firm foreclosed on his house (!). The firm's losing a demurrer when it sued State Farm (on Behnke's behalf) to recover fees allegedly owed.
But heaven help him, Behnke stuck with 'em, and English & Gloven continues to represent him on appeal. An appeal which it loses.
Still, I guess you have to admire the confidence of a client in his lawyer. Even when many would find that confidence misplaced.
