      If through the course of the case, the client and attorney discuss many things, and the client has paid the attorney, owes no money, the case is continuing, is it appropriate for the client to give the attorney a gift? Both client and attorney are same sex heterosexuals. (Just clarifying so it doesn’t seem as though client wants to enter into a relationship with attorney).

      Any gift you give at any point can become the subject of court motions and letters to the Board of Ethics under the right circumstances,so tread carefully.

      I don’t know. Over the years we have received flowers, candy, wine, and so on. I think these are just expressions of appreciation and are harmless.
