I recently cited on the LawBiz® Blog a commentator who called bill padding "the perfect crime." Certainly the degree of "perfection" in being able to pull off this unethical action depends in part on how inattentive the client is to the lawyer's bill, and how lacking in detail that bill is. As has been stated in press reports about the Madoff investment adviser scam, client statements received from Madoff had very little detail - but because the bottom line on their investments looked so good, few clients cared to peek "under the hood."
