The conservatives have clearly whipped up their groups against trial lawyers. Going back to the Bush/Rove, attack the trial lawyers that started in the early Texas political runs, they really have done a great job. I am interested in the statements like:
I bet the human garbage trial lawyers in America are praying for some radiation to make it over here
or this one:
With gas prices and health-care cost s rising, the last thing we need to do is continue padding trial lawyers’ pockets.
Sometimes I take the time to leave a comment. Sometimes I roll my eyes and move on to read something more logical.
But, this is the first time I’ve decided it’s worth spending some time here. What is it that makes the writer think that me and those who do this work are "human garbage"?
I would believe some of it is the commercials out there. But with all of the overall commercials out there, does it really make sense that a few have been singled out? The reality is with TIVO and other recordings, I very rarely watch more than the Super Bowl commercials.
Have lawyers done such a poor job of explaining themselves? Sure there are bad eggs out there, but is there any segment of society that doesn’t have their percentage of problems? But, is there really any area of social advancement that you can’t find a lawyer involved playing their part?
We often play a role in our communities far beyond representing people. Asked to be leaders in all sorts of areas. Far beyond what I would expect from the scum of the earth.
We represent people who wouldn’t have a voice or the money to take the fight to the powerful interests. Those interests don’t like it and they do everything they can to hurt our clients, sometimes by going after us. Do we get paid for what we do? Not always, but clearly we hope so.
