Lawyers don't seem ashamed at being lawyers

I met someone and he admitted it. Right out in public!!!! He almost seemed proud of it. So strange!

Repellent as they are, they serve a purpose.

I'll only be happy when all lawyers make no more than $19.95 and hour.

R1, I hope you're kidding. Even the least noble doctor, who is pursuing a career only for money, is better than a lawyer. Lawyers only perpetuate the "break a nail, sue someone" insanity. Lawyers have fucked up society.

Lawyers ARe pond scum.

People seem to want to be a lawyer and admire lawyers. It's a prized profession.

Something weird happens in law school, too...

Two of my best friends from college went to law school wanting to be the good kind of lawyer--work at legal aid, helping the poor and mentally ill. One had actually been a social worker with me. Magically, as soon as they popped out, they both became corporate lawyers and are sort of cynical and jaded.

Because law is all about money, R7. Lawyers suck. There is really no need for them, aside from the fact that there are so many fucking lawyers graduating each year.

R6, they Are prized because it seems the surest way of making money.

What we need are people who can think. However, law schools don't seem to turn out many of those.

I can't believe that OP. That guy must have been a bit "off."

I've never heard of one actually being proud of of what they do.

They all know in their hearts that they are evil incarnate. They couldn't possibly deny it.

Who got gays legal rights? Lawyers. Some of them are indeed good. Others are just whores.

No, R10, you are wrong. Law schools do indeed teach you to think. It is a talent to be able to see all sides of an issue, to see in other than black and white, to be able to marshal facts and apply the facts to legal principles. Clearly these do not apply to you as evidenced by your unsupported and biased opinion.

r13 sounds haughty. I hate haughty.

Was at a unemployment hearing for someone I fired for theft. She had a lawyer present. He was a cartoon. He waddled in looking like something out of The Godfather. Started grilling me and putting on a show like a TV lawyer. "So, do you admit that......?" It was hilarious. It was hard not to laugh in his face at all the high drama.....for an unemployment case. Even the referee was rolling her eyes.

r16 I think they let non-jews into the law nowadays.

Why do people say "the law?" So fucking pretentious.

Just remember some lawyers become judges and justices.

Why do so many people complain about the things lawyers do? They are there as THE advocate for a client. Don't people who engage a lawyer's services want to have a successful outcome? Some people are scum, some lawyers are likewise. If you want to rip someone's throat out, you get a pitbull. Lawyers are the equivalent.

You mean you hire bullies. Well, not surprising. Bullies probably do make the best lawyers.

"a talent to see all sides of the issue." No a talented lawyer only sees one side, the one he's paid to see.

So, when you get arrested, call your hairdresser to defend you.

Well, remember that some of them have done good things. Defending civil rights, gay rights, advancing social justice and standing up for innocent people.

Small things like that.

Q: How is a group of lawyers like a cum load?

A: Out of each you get one human being.

Many doctors are robot like. Surgeons are not generally nice people. They treat a sick or injured person as a broken machine. They make loads of money sometimes accomplishing absolutely nothing.

At least a lawyer has their clients' interests in mind, and how could you forget that a lawyer has been there nearly every time justice has been served.

Sometimes District Attorneys should be ashamed of being District Attorneys. I mean they lie and cheat and convict the innocent, if they are of color and free the guilty, who are white.
