Referring to post 23. Watched any lawyer ads on tv in fl lately?
Well, not in Florida, but many, many other places. Yes, many of them are objectionable in the extreme, but that is because - I think - that many of us see them through the eyes of a generation that once revered the legal profession and we think "Tsk, tsk. Has it come to this?" Gen-Xrs and Millenials have grown up w/ that garbage and probably give it little thought at all, which simply encourages more of it. Bar associations hate it too but are powerless to stop it.
No doubt - lawyers' never-ending quest for a deep pocket produces some perverse results - in the eyes of everyone but the client. And isn't that the person, the sole person, to whom the lawyer owes of duty diligent representation? There are many fine lines here, and, in my mind, no clear cut answers.
