Dont kid yourselves fellas, you are not the only ones in this world that make an above average living. I would be more that willing to compare tax returns. It is the fact that attorneys have some sort of scumbag entitlement that they feel they are doing some type of good when in fact (as you have stated in talk about about salaries) it is all about the money. Your testimony speaks for itself that most lawyers are out there for the money. Forget the spirit of the law or what is good for all of us, just as long as they cut their cut. Indy Lawyer, you are dodging the question I asked you. If this settlement is reached, how much will this law firm seek in the name of Johnny Taxpayer? Half or more? I have never been screwed by a lawyer I have been lucky to have one who actually thinks that the courts and the droves of new attorneys are substandard. Yes, he is almost 80 and could run rings around the LA Law types who are all about everyone knowing they are lawyers instead of actually being able to practice. Court adjourned baristers.  (Mar 19, 2008 | post #293)

OK, and I will be more than willing to show you the thousands of attorneys (like these guys) who are scum sucking bottom feeders. I am truely not misguided, just a little enlightened to how MOST attorneys work. It is a simple fact. This country would survive with less of your cohorts.  (Mar 18, 2008 | post #287)

Your last statement, I agree with totally. Someone at CIB should have researched this knowing it may have come up as a problem.  (Mar 18, 2008 | post #278)

Have you ever heard of prescription fraud? As a lawyer you should look at all the angles. Was there some type of system that checked if Anna was doctor shopping and the doctors did not know she was seeing others. My point is that, yes, there may be a few lawyers out there with, and I cant believe I am saying it, a heart and conscience. However, with my dealings with MOST of them, this is not the case (pun). Lawyers have made this country the most litigious country in the world. Every lawyer tells clients that someone or some company out there is to blame and they should pay. No matter how stupid or ridiculous the lawsuit can be. Most of society believes that someone else to blame for the mistakes that make. This is a shinning example. Do you REALLY think that this troll hole of law firm really cares about Johnny Taxpayer. IF they REALLY care they would do the case pro bono. Tell us Indy Lawyer, if they win a 4 million dollar settlement, how much of that will they charge in legal fees and court costs. 2 or 3 million. This is a money grab. Period. Yes, I think the money should go to pay for the new one, but it should not go to a bottom feeding law firm. I have to stay on the high horse, the legal horse crap is not fun to walk in.  (Mar 18, 2008 | post #263)

Ok, call me a doctor to help repair your shoulder when you get done jerking you and your lawyer buddies off. Lawyers are not even in the same league as doctors or accountants for that matter. Lets look at something. How many lawyers do you there are in this country? The American Bar Association says that they have around 1.1 million and change. The AMA says there around around 800,000 practing doctors in the US. Now, Oh Scholarly One, do you think this country would be better off with 300,000 more doctors or lawyers? I would say doctors. IF your brain power is sooooo much stronger then the rest of us, then try and do some good with it instead of chasing ambulances and looking for people to sue for car injury accidents. I too am a educated man, have lots of degrees telling me so. However, I choose to live a profession that helps those who cannot help themselves, not looking to sue whose fault it was. Keep the self dissillusions of grandeur for Biff and Muffy at the club. If they were doing the common good, they would have been pro bono on the suit  (Mar 17, 2008 | post #215)

OK, The premise of the lawsuit is a vaild point. I personally think that they should use the money they make off the auction should be used to pay for the overages for the new stadium and convention center. However, these actions are the ones that send me over the top and want to choke the life out of every lawyer I meet. Lets say they win, which they probably will, how much of the auction proceeds will go to paying the billable $300 and hour that they will charge themselves for the work? Probably 50-75%. The rest will never get to the "poor taxpayers" they say they are representing. How much will it take to send me a check for .38 cents which is probably my share. The reason that these scum sucking bottom dwellers get away with this is that they have time on their hands when working people do not and are unwilling to fight. I will donate $5 for the lawyers to go away and the CIB can change to program for the auction to pay down on the stadium project. Instead we will have some closet coke head, lucky to have graduated law school dirtbig getting rich off a lawsuit that some daddies friend judge rules in their favor. Shameful. Lawyers are one step below crack **** . At least a **** will try and earn a buck  (Mar 17, 2008 | post #208)

I guess you can take it for what it is. I responded to a direct attack at me. Lastly, I leave my posts online, for everyone to see. I am the most out spoken liberal veteran that you will ever meet. I just do not like it when we have illegals who think we should let them slide because they used to live in extreme poverty. I am for a lot of things that are unpopular. However, it is not hate when I see a culture of people who enjoy living off of, make money off of and despise the American way. Plain and simple.  (Mar 16, 2008 | post #582)

Ok jack a s s, they do receive free medical care, food stamps etc. It cost us REAL Americans billions to support the illegals children with more schools, free healthcare and services. So do us a favor, instead of loving life on a free ride, go back to the pre-historic dung hole you came from. When you have done enough, I may think about letting you live in MY COUNTRY. The one my grandfather, father, brother and I have fought for. I also pay a HUGE sum in tax to support people like you. Lastly, you couldnt carry my jock and I would match intelligence and resumes anytime. Plus, this Marine wouldnt be to kind to being called a moron to his face. Semper Fi.  (Mar 14, 2008 | post #404)

IF and that is a big IF on paying taxes. I just cannot respect anyone who came here under the cover of darkenss and against the law. Read my previous post as well. Hispanics REFUSE to accept America culture, they just want the benefits of it.  (Mar 14, 2008 | post #226)

The HUGE problem that everyone overlooks is that most Hispanics are RAPING this country. When my great grand parents came over the WANTED to be an America. They saw it was a better way of life. Hispanics just want to make money, send it back home and use the free welfare of this country. NONE OF THE HISPANICS WANTS TO BE AN AMERICAN! Thats why most REFUSE to learn or speak English. They do not want to be part of the regular Chamber of Commerce, they want their own Hispanic Chamber. I am of Irish decsent. I am proud of it. However, I am an American! I fought for my country am liberal as the next guy but I DONT NOT BELIEVE IN GIVING HANDOUTS TO CRIMINALS! Illegal immigrants are HERE CRIMINALLY! PERIOD!  (Mar 14, 2008 | post #223)
