Depending on the intended meaning... Sometimes people half-jokingly say the word -cafajeste-in a complimentary way, rather than as a derogatory word.

But, yes, more often than not you can translate it the way you did.
A "dirty bad lawyer" certainly was a statement meaning a ''rotten/scoundrel lawyer" made by someone when at the "wrong" end of law application.
Honorable/good would be the opinion of the guy benefited by the "way around it" found by the same guy...
There are always two sides of the same coin/issue...

Howdy, partner!

So, Paulo, I meant 'cafageste=mal-carater'

"Apparently some dirty bad lawyer has found a way around it" ( Parece que algum advogado mal-carater encontrou uma brecha )

Thank you very much!

You have helped me a lot!
