    Well there must be a God, because Terry Christensen finally got what was coming to him.  The man is a liar and his firm is an absolute snakepit, where the partners consistently abuse the associates and staff and cheat their clients.  At one point they were too cheap to invest in a billback system so they could charge phone calls to clients, so what did the geniuses do?  They divided the phone bill every month between all of their clients.  They got caught when MGM called to inquire how there could have been $400 worth of phone calls billed to them in a month where no attorney time was billed.
