More Tips from the Machiavellian Lawyer

Never confide in a Machiavellian lawyer. Assume everyone you meet is a Machiavellian lawyer. If you feel an emotional need to "open up," hire a psychologist. The $100 an hour you pay her is cheaper than opening up to a "friend," who most certainly is looking for a way to exploit your secrets.

Never tell anyone a secret unless you already have information that would ruin that person. If you slip up and share a secret (you foolishly drank with a Machiavellian lawyer), immediately hire a private investigator to follow the holder of that secret.
