He Tripped and Fell

It's almost enough to make you lose your faith in lawyers.

But then people who live in glass houses...

Most lawyers have no moral compass. They work for money not for right or wrong. No matter how right or wrong their client is they make their argument to win. They are happy when they are responsible for a child molester getting off on a technicality. Even when a lawyer is fighting on the side of righteousness, you still get the sense that they are on looking for the win/almighty dollar, and it is mere coincidence that they are on the side of righteousness.

This loser will probably beat his case and sue the city in return.

E,

Do you know "most lawyers"?

If so, you must get around quite a bit.

If not, perhaps you should reconsider the wisdom of making such broad-sweeping accusations without any basis in fact.

Thank you for your consideration.

P.S. to Mr. Spencer - This story makes me lose faith in lawyers as a whole no more than the story about Kayne West's mother's surgeon makes me lose faith in doctors as a whole. Which means not one iota. Once again, you engage in mindless stereotyping.

Law prof -

What fun would life be without a little mindless stereotpying?

Did you even read the above link to "glass houses"?

Obtuse Humorlessness, thy name is Law Prof

Mr. Spencer,

Of course I had read it.

Likewise, I do not judge journalists as a whole based upon only one.

Rather, I judge only journalists I know (such as you) and based only on their own words and deeds.

Leave it to a Lib Law Prof to broadly defend all lawyers no matter how truly scummy. While the proof of the harm the law profession has done to our society is overwhelming and everywhere.

law prof,

You are absolutely correct and I'll revise my statement. I would like to amend the beginning of my statement to read "Many lawyers have no moral compass." instead of "Most lawyers..."

Your response actually made me chuckle because it is worded exactly how one would expect a lawyer to respond. You infer that I must be some type of scum bag if I know "most lawyers" (so my opinion is less than credible) or if I don't "Know" most lawyers personally, than my opinion is also less than credible. Either way, your position is, my opinion is less than credible.

Nice.

anonymous,

Read law prof's first statement again, it proves my point exactly. It's a snapshot into the mind of a lawyer. There is no attempt to say that my statement isn't true, because right or wrong is of no consequence. Right and wrong are replaced with win or lose and the truth is relpaced by the most convincing argument.

Dear e:

I am a lawyer, and you are an idiot. How's that for directness and truth?

People get paid for the jobs they do. That does not give you the right to condemn them.
