Can a lawyer date a client?

For decades, regulators and courts have ruled that sex with a client during the course of the professional relationship is unethical. However, lawyers continue to flout precedents and are often disciplined for having sexual relations with their clients. A lawyer will not have sexual relations with a client unless there was a consensual sexual relationship between them when the client-lawyer relationship began. One of the risks of a sexual relationship between lawyer and client that is not mentioned in the main article, although suggested in Norm's comment, is that such relationships are often spoiled, and often for one partner before the other.
