Of course its obvious, and she is returning because she likes the aggression. OP, I hope you don't end up getting cucked.

Correction: I hope you don't end up getting Chucked.

Untrue. I've been self sufficient for some time. I had a job (not law related) where one of my superiors attempted to screw my girlfriend at the time - she wanted a job, and it was basically a very flirtatious possible if sex -> job hire. I complained to the head who told me it wasn't any of my biz. I needed the job and the $ but said screw it. I lived like dirt for a while - no $ for anything, no new clothes. then i developed new skills and made more than i did previously. best choice i ever made. if i stayed there, i prob would have been laid off at some pt, and wouldnt have had the confidence to develop a new skill.

Say that you feel like you've done work that deserves compensation and given him access to your Westlaw/Nexis accounts, which saved him tons of money. Be really nice and if he says no or blows up at you then just say you cannot continue to work without compensation given the work you are doing, but that you really enjoyed working for him.
This is also, as Chuck well knows, a crime. Yet another reason for OP to GTFO. Also, OP needs to change those passwords IMMEDIATELY. Fuck Chuck and his free-riding ass.
