kind of a ridiculous post. i understand there's a general hate for lawyers in america but it's horribly unfounded. lawyer's are the reason why we have change in our country. white and black people would still be drinking out of separate drinking fountains, those in the criminal system wouldn't have someone to defend them or vice versa they wouldn't get a sentence they deserve, rich white men would be the only people who can vote and most importantly your parents would still be married. also, lawyers provide more pro bono service (free legal services to further change in our country and for those who cannot otherwise afford a lawyer) than any other professional group.
haha and a corrupt legal system? you need to check out any other country and see how well our system works compared to other countries. move to china and see what kind of justice you get.
sorry to rant... but lawyers don't just sue ski mountains to make money or to drive up insurance costs. they do it cuz someone got seriously fucked up because of someone else's mistake.... if a lawyer tries to bring a frivolous lawsuit they get disbarred (their license revoked). i'm not saying that our system is perfect or that every lawyer is a saint but if youre going to criticize the legal system you ought to do it in a more intelligent manner than you did.
