Take Away

While Nova Henry and Ava is dead, and Frederick Goings is serving Life without, there are lessons here for anyone willing to it a thought Pay attention to what people do with and to you. It is unprofessional and morally wrong to have a relationship with a client for an attorney. If he wanted to date her, he should have gotten another lawyer to take over the support case or kept the case and remained uninvolved. This speaks volumes about his character and entitlement. If someone who should not be dating you is, that's a huge red flag.
