#62. Lawyers: pedantic, unrealistic, and out of touch.  Which can be a useful distraction during a crisis situation!

What people said:

  1. Sharp and Useless

    Concerning personal service, it can be waived in particular circumstances, and I think you’d be able to get court-permission to subserve if it was a people-eating goblin. Depends on how pragmatic the judge is.

    Concerning boring the heck out of clients, it really IS an effective way to gently dissuade a rash decision. No one wants to act, much less act rashly, once a lawyer has pontificated for an hour or so. At that point, it’s just survival instincts kicking in: people rushing for the bathrooms, and caffeine, and their cell phones.

Free speech! (Except spammers, trolls, and that one guy...)
