Famous Quotes.- "Lawyers Seldom Lawyer Anymore"

"Lawyers seldom lawyer anymore. They go along with the culture that stresses efficency over justice. Into this pleabargaining assemblyline culture we insert probate conservatorship law and the expediency concept seeps over and social costs are disregarded in the same way as everything else in our legal culture.

Sit in a criminal courtroom any day of the week and watch the parade of personal tragedy and broken lives that is routinely meted out every day.

The lawyers do not have the guts to try cases because too many can't. When that happens even honest judges are powerless. And all are habituated to injustice. The whole system needs an overhaul to increase the system capacity to deliver justice to all."
