Every day lawyers make money the legal way. In the process, they cost well meaning honest people a ton and a half of money. Considering the weight of paper money, that’s a lot of cash.
They don’t have to win their cases in court. They sue for a million, settle for 200 thousand and the lawyers walk away with 80 thousand of it. This, of course all occurs within months, maybe weeks.
The sad thing is that many of the defendants have done nothing wrong. I wonder suspect no one is keeping any statistics. I suspect that those statistics would prove that most of the time the loser is our justice system.
Then, there are those situations where the defedants are guilty. In the recent case concerning Camp Lejeune, the lawyers seem to really be cleaning up.
I can’t help but wonder how much of our tax money is going into the hands of lawyers rather than victims. The attorneys advertise day and night. There must be a lot at stake. Otherwise, why advertise so much.
It is legal, completely. However, as veteran myself, it leaves a very bitter taste in my mouth that the lawyers would buy their executive jets off veterans like me. It is likely why lawyers are known as a necessary evil.
As an aside, think about it. The Congressmen are largely lawyers making laws to benefit lawyers. Unlike the Constitution, laws aren’t written in plain English. In order to understand laws, we need lawyers. By the way, sometimes the lawyers don’t understand them.
It’s no wonder lawyers live so well, unless they are honest and ethical.
