I understand the criticism towards personal injury attorneys and foreclosure defense attorneys. However, it is important to understand that there are MANY different areas of practicing law.
- State Prosecutor - Federal Prosecutor - Public Defender - Probate - Transaction - Insurance Defense - Commercial Litigation - Condominium Law - Personal Injury - Tax Law - Elder Law - Development and Zoning Law - Medical Malpractice - Real Estate Law - Bankrputcy
That's FIFTEEN areas of the law I just reeled off without even thinking... There are probably 5-10 more- so, it is a SHORT-SIGHTED argument to casually "lump" all atorneys into one ball and then conclude that the entire legal profession is dragging down the country. Truth be told, it's silly.
