Quoth the Lawyer...

One of our legal blog writers, Rich Gallena, was looking up law-related quotes for a recent writing project. He noted how challenging it was to find material that was not some under-handed (or over-handed) insult to our profession. It may seem like an impossibility to reverse some negative public impressions about lawyers. But we can improve helpful blog post at at time.
