Attorney Joseph Leslie is known for winning difficult white-collar crime cases. He pushes his staff to work long hours and provide information very quickly even though he does not do the same. He only accepts wealthy clients who pay up front but does not pay his consultants and experts in a timely manner. He would like to hire you to serve as an expert witness for a recently accepted engagement. What factors would you consider in deciding whether to accept an engagement? Under what circumstances would you accept this case, if at all? Explain your answer. In your response post, consider how the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA’s) Code of Professional Conduct relates to the acceptance of this engagement. Use the Code of Professional Conduct to justify recommendations you may have for your peers in accepting or declining this case. Support your initial posts and response posts with scholarly sources cited in APA style.
