Most people feel the same about their lawyer as they do their congressman, considering him or her fairly likable and honest, dismissing all the rest as little better than whorish pickpockets.

Partly on account of having briefly been both a politician and a lawyer, I don't share this popular prejudice. Especially when it comes to small town lawyers, the vast majority are sincere and honorable - even smart, though not so smart as they like to think.
