  • The American Bar Association journal identified the most recent of a series of legal services provided “quick and easy.” As the story goes, the client signs up online, provides a summary of the issue, pays $39 and gets a call back in 15 minutes from an attorney who is willing to give him/her advice for 15 minutes. It all sounds good, until you act on what you think that advise was. This is not to say that the advise was bad, or that the attorney is not competent in the field of inquiry; it reflects on the time restrictions inherent in this business model.

  • I have often wondered whether class action lawsuits give a bad name to the legal profession; whether they are more beneficial to attorneys who file them than the individuals they seek to protect. But if I had any doubts before, they were resolved when I read about a recent case involving railroad workers and Penn Central Transportation, a division of American Financial Group.
