I once met a lawyer who had set his letterhead in a font called Stencil:
Who were his target clients? Army-surplus stores? He explained that he wanted something distinctive.
Distinctive is fine. Goofy is not.
From the top: no, no, no, no, and hell no.
Novelty fonts, script fonts, handwriting fonts, circus fonts—these have no place in any document created by a lawyer. Save them for your next career as a designer of breakfast-cereal boxes.
The reason these fonts persist is because they’re included among the standard system fonts. See the chart in that section for more nuanced guidance.
