    Well it depends. Is you suit intended to right a wrong, or just make you money?

    Either way the lawyer is the one who wins.

    I got a kick out of the sign for the law office I passed every day on my way to work: Dial & Lose. The odds got a little better when the added another partner: May.

    Depending on what your suit’s about, you might save a lot of money and enjoy life more if you dumped all your notes and supporting files in that wastecan and went to the nearest ice cream shop.

    There used to be a law partnership in my home town called “Coffin, Mew, and Clover” which always sounded really weird.

    My grandmother had a fake book for hiding valuables in, titled on the spine as “Tryem and Chancitt”.

    Having been through a few legal situations, I would always pick the scariest firm. If they are already on your side, they can’t be hired against you.

    In ‘The Force’ by Don Winslow a tough law&order cop spends the first 200 pages talking about how much he hates a particular defense attorney who always gets his clients off. As soon as the cop’s dirty secrets come out, he runs straight to the lawyer he hates.

    Fresh out of law school, I took a job with a local firm. Three weeks into it, the senior partner told me, "This isn’t some big ‘truth party’ out there. Our clients expect us to do whatever it takes to win, regardless of something like ‘truth.’ " I left working for this slimeball within the month.

    They should go for the left door. Those lawyers are obviously even more conniving that the others.
