As I sit in the district courtroom in Decatur listening to about ten lawyers argue pre-trial motions in some wrongful death case, I'm thankful that I gave up that area of law about 16 years ago.

That is where you find the slime but also that is where the money is.

I considered law school after undergrad and opted out simply because I was tired of living the poverty-laden student lifestyle. I am so thankful that I did not attend law school. I honestly do not think I could have lived with myself when I found the level to which you sink and the need to so completely sell yourself out. I just could not have done it.

You make a good point 12:20, but you are wrong that all lawyers sell themselves out. That's just not true.

Just today, I saw a lawyer shed tears with a family who got their children back.

Don't lump them all into one wad.

I get so sick of lawyer bashing. Every profession has its good people and slime. No profession is all good or all bad. Not all lawyers sell out and there are some great selfless p.i. lawyers out there, some in Wise county.

I have had excellent experiences with lawyers in Wise County. Due to a minor slip up, I had to spend a few days in jail. My Wise County attorney would always bring me candy bars when he came to see me. That may not seem like a big deal, but trust me....a woman needs her chocolate!

I will apologize and try to change my ways in generalizing about lawyers. It's just that I have never met one like those you guys have met. Everyone I ever met was there for one thing and one thing only -- MONEY.

Yes, most people do work to earn MONEY. Unfortunately, it takes MONEY to survive, so it's a necessity. Some people are just more fortunate than others when it comes to the amount of MONEY their respective job brings in.
