Another thing that neither Feinstein and nor the California State Bar mentioned, and which was almost certainly relevant to the Gian Luigi Ferri/101 California Street/Pettit & Martin incident, is that lawyers have far and away the highest rates of alcoholism and drug abuse (and also of suicide, divorce, and doemstic violence) of any major profession.Mark,very interesting ! Reminds me of a old joke. You know what they say about one lawyer at the bottom of the ocean.( a good start )
And lawyers who are on drugs: one, have an even much higher rate of embezzling the money of their clients and former clients than other lawyers do, and including so as to fund their drug habits; and two, when asked to return the money they stole and embezzled, instead almost always turn into vicious wild sadistic animals, and including with the goal of "proving" the client or former client whose money they stole is "crazy" by their harassing the client or former client until he inevitably explodes.
Of course Feinstein, and whose first husband was a lawyer (and in fact Feinstein herself in her younger days worked in the San Francisco DA's office) and whose daughter is also one of the most prominent lawyers in California, could always give us a big laugh by insisting that she is not aware of: one, the real "standards" of most lawyers; two, that lawyers have higher than skyhigh rates of drug abuse, and that lawyers who are drug addicts are usually vicious sadistic wild aniumals who, and as standard practice, embezzle the money of their clients and former clients; and three, that Pettit & Martin was one of the very sleaziest and most politically connected law firms in San Francisco, and in fact almost certainly SF's very sleaziest major law firm, and in fact a law firm, and including due to its political connections, that did not believe it had to follow the law even a little bit.
And Barbara Boxer's husband, in other words Stewart Boxer, is a lawyer, and as also is her son, in other words Douglas Boxer. So Barbara Boxer could also give us a big laugh by insisting that the thought never occurred to her, and nor to her husband or son, that almost certainly the real and actual story of the Gian Luigi Ferri/101 California St/Pettit & Martin incident was that some sleazy lawyers, and who probably were also on drugs, embezzled Ferri's money, and then when he asked for the money back, instead they kept on deliberately and sadistically harassing him until he inevitably exploded.
In a future post I wil also give us some additional information about Pettir & Martin, and also how it culture and extreme sleaziness made it almost certainly the number one candidate in the entire country among all of the nation's major law firms for a Gian Luigi Ferri type incident.
