Just an old country lawyer here    Posted 09-30-2002 at 18:00:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
Been hanging around here for about 3 years and ain't seen nobody say nothing good bout us yet.Guess it's bout time to hang it up anyway. Been in this business 27 years. Last year made $13,300. and this year, so far, about $7,500.
Most of the pore folks that come to my door just need help so I pay all their fees and expenses out of my pocket. Don't matter that I don't get it back. Helped bury the old black lady that considered me like her son. I'm white and live in the South. No problem. I sleep good at night. Y'all just keep on cussing us ALL till there ain't no ones but the sharks left.

I do hear mention of good lawyers from time to time--especially the one's in family law who are willing to fight for the best welfare for the kids, not the sides of the squabbling parents.
So I'd say good doctors, good lawyers, etc. is just like good friends, it's finding them, that's
the Hard Part.

Yes I tell a lawyer joke when I hear a good one,I tell other jokes too. But on the serious side if judges would throw a lot of these cases out, and the juries would use some reasoning in some of these cases. It is other people that also have an impact as to some of the craziness in this world. You sir are to be comende- comand commended Thanked for doing what is right regardless of the personel cost to you.

Remember when everyone with a differing opinion was a Communist? Well now the term has evolved to "Taliban sympathizer". Now don't get me wrong - i'm not calling anybody names. Besides, lawyers and Taliban sympathizers know how to spell "poor". I have the strangest hunch that somebody's pulling my leg here. :)

No good deed goes unpunished ;)

Seems to me most folks that get recognition for doing good things have a friend that works for the newspaper. Know what I mean?

After working 70+ hours a week and spending time with the wife and kids, I still find a day or two every week to lead a youth group. I chuckle to myself when awards get handed to uncommited one-time do-gooders.

We don't do what we do for recognition. We do it because we know it is the right thing to do. Pain, fatigue and reputation do not change the facts of right and wrong. Other peoples opinions cannot change the needs in our community.

The history of the world is a struggle between the selfish and the unselfish. Here's to you my brother in arms, fighting the good fight day in and day out.

Well now, I never had any dealings with lawyers, so I don't have an opinion. Of course, what you see on TV news doesn't really make lawyers look that good. Maybe that's the problem... bad publicity?

DeadCarp - expectations?    Posted 10-01-2002 at 06:38:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
If we get in a dispute, we hire a lawyer. Just like when a kid calls his big brother, it then becomes a question of who's brother is bigger. And we expect the wrong things from lawyers - we demand justice and that's the judge's department. All lawyers can do - all they're trained for - is to apply the law and polish the apples we pay them to.

How honest should we expect lawyers to be? Under normal circumstances, they should be almost exactly as honest as their clients. It would be economic suicide for a lawyer to not believe his client cuz that keeps the kids fed, like any job.

And don't expect a lawyer to respond typically to a joke. Lawyers are taught to think in the alternative - so when they hear a joke, (The elephant couldn't attend - he's still in the refrigerator) they don't think "What does that mean?" but rather "What could that possibly mean?" The delay in thinking ruins the timing.

A clergiman, on the other hand, refuses to consider elephants cuz they aren't in the Bible. Course not - I TOLD YA he's in the darn FRIDGE! :)
