Always knew, you can't trust a lawyer. Even a divorce lawyer.

It just shows that there is just too much "PRESSURE" on Long Island to live and succeed..... The "greed" factor is off the charts here. Everyone wants more, more, more. Whoever has the most toys, biggest cars, and largest house, and most money seems to be "American Idol" not the quality and nature of the PERSON!!!!!!

WHAT SHOULD BE WRITTEN ABOUT IS THE AMOUNT OF MONEY CHARGED BY THE LAYWERS IN THE DIVORCE PROCESS. IT SEEMS TO BE A GOOD OLD BOYS NETWORK WITH THE LACK OF INTERST BY THE COURTS IN MOVING CASES ALONG , FAR MORE MONEY IS PAID TO THE LAYWERS THAN NECESSARY AND DRASTICALLY MORE THAN IS STOLEN

Interesting all of them stole over a million dollars and received almost NO jail time with only one paying restitution. hmmm I can see how this is so much different than when a young black kid robs a news paper stand of sixty bucks.

one final thought....take a moment and do the math and see just how much jail time each of these lowlife dirtbags have to serve in relation to the amount of money stolen from the troubled people the were sworn to protect.
After doing this take a moment to ask yourself "does crime really pay?" Seems to pay pretty darn well for these selfish pigs. What disturbs me as much... or maybe more.... is the fact that it is a "JUDGE" who sets the length of sentence (ie: determines the waht the "cost" of the crime will be). It make one wonder exactly where the lack of real justice finds the end of it's roots.

....hey "Hieronymus" (from a few posts ago) maybe we should be bowing down...or perhaps falling on our faces when the judge walks by...

i believe lawyers should not be able to hold escrow monies. most lawyers in the real estate indusrty are really not needed. They basically over charge for doing nothing.You cannot have title companies hold escrows because most of them are owned by the attorney or the attorney has a finanacial intrest in them. my Suggestion there should be a statewide escrow account monitored by the state government . Where all escrow monies are deposited with disclosures and paperwork to monitor when monies are dpeosited and released.

Here is food for thought......Who makes the laws in this country? and aren't many of those congressmen and senators lawyers? Who are the local law makers? many are lawyers. Who judges cases brought before them? Aren't they lawyers? Who oversees lawyers? The Bar association, made up of lawyers. For those of you who have been through divorces, who negotiates in tough situations? The lawyers, who by the way work together a lot.

So in fewer words, lawyers make the laws, lawyers judge the laws, lawyers enforce the laws, and lawyers oversee each other.

What do you expect???? Is this a suprise???

Fyi, A Liar, err Lawyer, isn't required to join the Bar association. If you have a complaint against a Liar, err Lawyer, you file a Grievance with the Grievance Committee which is a committee comprised of, you guessed it, Liars.

So how far do you think your complaint is going to go?

That depends on how far away the trash can is from the desk of the Liar assigned to your complaint.

King Henry VI was right on the money.
