Why Do People Dislike Lawyers?
“We Only Have Ourselves to Blame”

A: A bad lawyer makes your case drag on for years. A good lawyer makes it last even longer.
As is the case with all humor, there has to be a little bit of truth to make a joke funny. That being said, have we as lawyers contributed to making ourselves the butt of jokes? I have found there are three activities that lead to the distaste for lawyers:
