Did you see 3 relevant questions better at discovering an individual's core personal character? Which questions?

1. If he/she have ever had an affair?

2. If he/she files income tax returns timely and whether their returns are well within the bounds of the law or whether they are super agressive, playing audit roulette, and are perfectly willing to pay more taxes and interest if caught by the IRS?

3. Whether he/she has ever had any complaints filed against them with the relevant bar association(s) or any malpractice claims in a court?

Sure, #1 is a personal question that may offend the person. Maybe his/her reaction to the question will reveal more about his/her character than answering a question about his/her parents' occupation.

For question #2, would you want an estate lawyer designing your estate plan if he/she plays audit roulette with the IRS every year? I'd want a plan that stands up in court if challenged.

What's your problem with question #3?
