  • Unwritten Laws of Lawyers

    Unwritten law rule #1 The attorney always get paid..

    Attorneys, by clogging the courts with millions of frivolous lawsuits and dragging case for years on end, have made litigation a very expensive proposition in America. Regardless of the outcome of the lawsuit - win, lose or draw - the attorneys get paid. Always.

    Unwritten law rule #2: Attorneys hear, see and speak no evil of other attorneys.

    Attorneys by and large, even the good attorneys who play by the rules and conduct themselves in an honest and forthright fashion, are reticent to speak out about the rogue attorneys who wantonly abuse the legal system and give the legal profession such a bad name.

    Rather than risk being blackballed or ostracized by their attorney cronies by crying foul, attorneys hold their nose and turn a blind eye towards the nefarious shenanigans of the less than honorable attorneys in their midst. This plays right into the hands of the dirty dealing attorneys.

    Unwritten law rule #3: Attorneys can make your life a living hellhole - and all you can do is sit there and take it.

    America's legal system by design is very one-sided in nature, with the attorneys pulling most of the strings.

    Let's look at some of the unilateral powers attorneys hold over us all. You have to swear to tell the truth and the attorneys don't. You have to show respect or risk being cited with contempt of court and the attorneys don't. You have to abide by specific timetables while the attorneys can drag things out and tie you up in litigation for years.

    An attorney can accuse you of everything under the sun, trash your reputation and drag your good name into the dirt. And all you can do is sit there and watch it happen.


    Unwritten law rule #4: Right and wrong are no longer cut and dried propositions in America's legal system.

    Attorneys, depending on what side of the fence their clients are sitting, find the concepts of right and wrong somewhat troublesome and annoying. They prefer to play in the gray areas of the law, where these nebulous concepts don't get in their way.

    Unwritten law rule #5: You don't have to be wrong to be sued.

    Even if you haven't done anything wrong (after all, what's right and wrong got to do with the law?), you can still get hammered by a lawsuit. And once you're hit with a lawsuit, you have no choice but to fight the lawsuit or you lose by default. Fighting lawsuits in America is a very expensive proposition indeed. Attorneys fees of $100, $200 or even more per hour are not uncommon - and the hours can mount up quickly.

    A frivolous lawsuit filed against you by an attorney representing someone who holds a grudge, is mad at you or is just looking for you to toss them a bone, can land you smack dab in the poor house.

    By the time you ultimately prevail and win the frivolous case (if you can call it winning), you may have already lost everything you own. Come on, for crying out loud, why should a lawsuit cost a person his or her life savings in legal fees, even when that individual did nothing wrong? It shouldn't, but in the sue happy society in which we live, it happens every day.

    Does anyone see a problem here? Not the attorneys, that's for sure.

    Unwritten law rule #6: You don't have to be right to win.

    Again, winning in court (or settling out of court) does not necessarily have anything to do with being right. Frivolous lawsuits, by nature, are lawsuits that are filed for no other reason than to extort money from innocent victims.

    Since attorneys know full well that many people who are sued will elect to settle rather than go through the hassle, time and ungodly expense associated with litigation, many attorneys file lawsuits that have nothing to do with being "in the right."

    Unwritten law rule #7: Lawyers should help stomp out personal responsibility in America.

    Personal responsibility is the bane of a large number of attorneys who seek to make victims of us all. The more people who eschew personal responsibility and are willing to blame everyone else for all of their troubles, the better it gets for the attorneys.

    Lawyers have long known that these "point the finger at the other guy" individuals make super clients.


    Unwritten law rule #8: If at all possible, make a mountain out of a molehill.

    The unwritten law dictates that if there is a way for the attorneys to take a trivial matter and blow it up into a class action lawsuit where the really big bucks can be made, then the attorneys are obligated to do so.

    Unwritten law rule #9: Lawyers must band together and fight tooth and nail to avoid any form of lawsuit reform in America.

    Attorneys don't want anyone messing with the way the legal system is set up right now. With the cards so heavily stacked in their favor, who could hardly blame them?

    Well there you have it - the unwritten laws of the legal profession. While you'll never hear an attorney openly admit that these unwritten laws exist, if you ever get embroiled in a lawsuit (and we hope that you won't) you'll find out in an unpleasant way that these unwritten laws most certainly apply to a great number of attorneys in America.


    <span class="ev_code_RED">I believe ILW is owned and operated by lawyers. I guess I will now be banned forever for exposing facts about lawyers</span>
    I am not racist. I am not anti-immigrant. I am AGAINST CRIMINALS, FRAUDSTERS, WHO DISOBEY THE LAW, BREAK THE LAW AND PERPETRATE THE FRAUD.

    You may not like what I have to say but that does not mean I am wrong.
