see that's why I jumped in, that idea that lawyers are only about the payday.
lets say, for example, I want to sue mila kunis for not sleeping with me because I think she has a legal obligation to based on how hot she is. a lawyer, by law cant in good faith take that case because they know, there is no legal basis for it.
that said, if the argument can be made that something could possibly be legal, lets say, for driveline issues. then yes, its something any lawyer basically has an obligation to take if the client can afford to pay in the case of a loss.
what im getting at here, is that the law is an ugly, complicated beast that regular people cannot, and will not, be able to relegate things down to "simple understanding" because judges, are all about the details, and are rarely interested in dumbing things down.
so please, don't beat down on laywers, they aren't all that bad once you get to know them. some are, like anything else, but the same can be said for doctors, mechanics, computer technicians. you name it.
I just don't like seeing people throw out the assumption that lawyers are only about making money and nothing else.
