Samantha was a partner with Joe and Tammy in a law firm in Bethlehem, PA. In addition to the three partners, the firm employed one other lawyer (hired as an associate attorney), two paralegals, and one administrative assistant/receptionist. The firm was doing well financially and had a well-written partnership agreement setting forth all of the basic requirements for the partnership including division of profits, management responsibilities, etc. As Christmas 2015 approached, Samantha wanted to earn some extra cash so that she could buy her husband a very special Christmas gift since Christmas Day was also his 30th birthday. She began taking in some additional clients after regular business hours and did not tell anyone else at the firm what she was doing. She paid a friend of hers, who was a part-time paralegal at a different firm, to do the paperwork for these additional clients. Joe went by the office one night because he had accidentally left his cell phone in his desk drawer. He discovered Samantha there with a client with whom he was unfamiliar. The next day he asked Tammy if she knew of this client (she did not) and Joe could find no client file on this person in the firmâ€™s records. Samantha admitted what she had been doing when Joe and Tammy confronted her, but she insisted she could do anything she wanted on her time and especially since she wasnâ€™t using office resources for those additional clients.
