After a few months of working with Jerome Karam, I learned that lawyers can embrace the “dark” and the “bright” side. Fortunately enough, I found the right guy who picked his virtual lightsaber and totally destroyed the dark side.
Here are some more or less wise sayings about lawyers and the American legal system. Some of these are quite sarcastic, nevertheless they are quite close to the truth.
- An attorney is a professional who can write a 40,000-word document and call it a "brief."
- Lawyers are very much like physicians: what one says, the other one always contradicts.
- There isn’t a better way to train your imagination than studying the law. No poet has ever portrayed nature as freely and beautifully as an attorney interprets the truth.
