    If the lawyer actually did this, it's stupid behavior on his part. If the defendant really is a bad guy by intentionally not paying his child support, he should have known this and should not have allowed the guy to 'goad' him into popping him one. If the guy isn't bad but there's some valid issue (lost his job, is on reduced hours), the guy who isn't paying probably is feeling bad enough as it is and is mad about it, and thus the lawyer should have realized it's on the order of squeezing blood from a turnip, and not allow the other man's anger to goad him there either. And it is extremely likely there's acrimony there and the guy is taking out on the lawyer what he can't take out on his ex wife. You can't take this stuff personally, doing so means you start buying antacids and ulcer medication in carload quantity. Lawyer needs to learn to cool off and maybe take some anger management courses before he does this again, to some guy who sues him into Chapter 11.
