  • It is sad there are so many apologists for Charlton. Sad comment about the moral standing of the profession. That sort of 'me-me-me' value system is evidenced in all sorts of dealings, whether business or personal.

  • Some of the comments and defenses mounted here are clearly poorly planned spin by authorized or unofficial "sock puppets "... probably of the poor prospects variety ( but who will believe the guff anyway )....I wonder whether it would be interesting to know who he was out on the p*** with..maybe that was enough to drive him to ( over ) drink... he has been and presumably remains most definitely a more than capable lawyer and a very colorful character among the grayness of many of his colleagues but also the beneficiary of the largesse or tolerance accorded those on the inside..It is extremely fortunate, no doubt, that there is not a human tragedy in all of this and just professional issues which will have to be addressed.

  • To Christina - your defence of his behaviour is deplorable - are you a paid flunkie or just utterly deluded/infatuated? I am sure even Charlton is having regrets over his stupidity and recklessness - looks like if he is at the 'top of his game' it might be worth cutting his losses while he is ahead. This recklessness may hide a deeper and darker malaise.

  • Clunk Click: just observational.
    Brave Anonymous (12:01 - 22 March): Nobody's a flunkie, deluded or infatuated. Just seen far too many lawyers over the years do almost exactly what Peter did, only they didn't get caught. I also don't think anyone other than he (or his family and/or friends) is in a position to state that his "recklessness may hide a deeper darker malaise" - obviously you don't fit into those categories.
