It is ethical for the lawyer to post a blog entry with a link to the accountant for the purposes of link building the accountant's website?
The linked site is not in a business directly related to the linking site:
ie. lawyer ---> accountant
and they are in a different geographical location (so they probably will never share clients)
and they don't know each other personally and have never worked together.
Would Google consider this a paid link?
However, you said yourself the sites are not targeting the same geo location which tells me the link is irrelevant. So you answered your own question, probably a waste of time to do it. However, one irrelevant link isnt going to cause a problem with any search engine.
