The good, the Bad and the Lawyer

Lawyers often get a bad name. Many of us make good money and many of us represent unsavory people. There is a flaw in the legal system that allows lawyers to do good based on greed. For example, one of the BEST things about the legal system is the Class Action. It allows a small hourly employee to hold a billion dollar corporation accountable for its own greed. That does give an opportunity for one lawyer to make a great deal of money.

The legal system can be taken advantage of just like any other system. However, most lawyers are simply people earning a living. There are no more bad lawyers in the world than bad plumbers or doctors. They are just people.

This BLOG is one effort to educate people on the limits of their rights as employees. Corporate America wants the little guy to think badly of ALL lawyers. They do so because, right or wrong, lawyers are one of the few ways the little guy can fight the big guys.

Lawyers who practice in employment law and civil rights do not make millions. They represent people who make $10 an hour and are committed to helping people as much as any doctor or social worker.

Therefore, as you hear terrible things about TRIAL LAWYERS, remember that there are trial lawyers who help people regardless of their income or background and they do it everyday.
