Lizards, Sharks, and Snakes, Oh My!

It's Friday night, and I'm bored, so I thought I'd present a philosiphical question on the need for attorneys. How they are good for society. How they are bad for society. (tee hee)

Without law and the enforcement of the law it would be difficult to have justice.

Similarly, without defense attorneys an individuals rights could be trampled by the state.

I would say that society needs good attorneys but it doesn't need bad ones.

This means we need you.  :heart:

:lol:

Damn, and I was getting ready to go into a full blown philosophical argument predicated on the immaterial portion of human beings.

I'll pm a moderator to lock the thread.

j/k

How is the "immaterial portion of human beings" related to being a lawyer???

It isn't.  In order to do that I would have to derail the thread.

:lol:

Well, this is it for me.  I have a late night and an early morning.

See you on the 'morrow. :wink:

Goodnight :smile:

What do you call ten attorney's of law buried to their neck in sand?

Not enough sand.

What do you call an attorney with an IQ of 80?

Your Honor.

If a lawyer and an IRS agent were both drowning, and you could only save one of them, would you go to lunch or read the paper?

As difficult as it may sometimes seem, there are respectable lawyers out there..

I think the trick is to get to know them first before you do business.

Getting a bad vibe during the first few stages can help weed out the lizards, sharks and snakes [... As few as they are ...].

But MM, isint justice the same as state approved revenge?

This is true, in many cases. I had a client who had enough money to have "principles".

It cost him $85,000, 10 years and 3 attorneys over a $5,000 case. He was "offended" and didn't understand that sometimes, principles come at too high a price, and that karma or God have a way of working things out for us, and our foes.

The concept of justice may come into play in government but it is a concept that can stand by itself. Just like good or evil can stand by themselves.
