Where there are too many policemen, there is no liberty. Where there are too many soldiers, there is no peace. Where there are too many lawyers, there is no justice.
by Lin Yutang
The only way you can beat the lawyers is to die with nothing.
People are getting smarter nowadays; they are letting lawyers, instead of their conscience, be their guide.
The trouble with law is lawyers.
The only real lawyers are trial lawyers, and trial lawyers try cases to juries.
It is a maxim among these lawyers, that whatever hath been done before, may legally be done again: and therefore they take special care to record all the decisions formerly made against common justice and the general reason of mankind.
I’ve had ample contact with lawyers, and I’m convinced that the only fortune they ever leave is their own.
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Ya know why everyone thinks that all lawyers are back stabbing, blood sucking scum bags? cause they are! and I can not believe you expect me to go out, leave my kids with strangers and get people to trust you with their lives while all the while your screwing me! You know, Ed, it’s not about the number! It’s about the way my work is valued in this firm…
To some lawyers, all facts are created equal.
It costs a lot to sue a magazine, and it’s too bad that we don’t have a system where the losing team has to pay the winning team’s lawyers.
