A lot of them hiring a client to fix something because it's cheaper than hiring a professional, which leads to damage and inconvenience substantially more costly than actually hiring a professional would have. Interestingly, lately this has specifically mostly been water damage.

1) He hired some of his criminal defense clients to replace the roof, and said roof naturally began to leak during the first rain of spring. When my parents attempted to contact these people, they had cancelled all of their phone numbers and "gone incommunicado." Apparently not even their children know where they are.

2) He hired a client to work on the basement. This guy disappeared without fixing the basement's primary problem, viz, the dryer is venting into the laundry room. This had already caused major moisture damage to the walls during the time he has refused to address it at all; now that the guy has disappeared, he claims that there is nothing at all that can be done about the problem.

3) He has suggested that I deal with the damage which his car-repair-crimes client caused by pretending to repair my car by trading my car in.

Your father is not the only example of this I have come across - it seems that people who no longer possess basic human abilities like object permanence or a functioning inner ear are still able to practice law. Which makes me wonder about the practice of law.
