Lawyers lawyers

This is what I do when I have a tough essay to write on a tight deadline. Here’s what emerged after the last half hour’s wandering around the internet:

“Lawyers should never marry other lawyers. This is called inbreeding, from which comes idiot children and more lawyers.” – from Adam’s Rib 

“Of course I’ve got lawyers. They are like nuclear weapons: I’ve got em coz everyone else has. But as soon as you use them they screw everything up.” -from Other People’s Money

“Lawyers are the only persons in whom ignorance of the law is not punished”- Jeremy Bentham

To some lawyers all facts are created equal” Felix Frankfurter

“I get paid for seeing that my clients have every break the law allows. I have knowingly defended a number of guilty men. But the guilty never escape unscathed. My fees are sufficient punishment for anyone” – F. Lee Bailey
