I have mixed feelings about attorneys
. When they sue you and you have to confess to all the bad things that you did and pay hard cash, it hurts and you hate the lawyers
. That is why corporations hate
them. On the other hand when you are the victim
and injustice has been done to you, only a lawyer can fight for you
and try to secure justice for you. Are attorneys good or bad
? Despite all the jokes and perceptions, there is no good answer. It all depends on the situation.
You get to see these questions handled in this excellent movie "Michael Clayton" starring George Clooney
, who as always, does an excellent job portraying Clayton as a lawyer who cleans up all the mess that wealthy people get into (a good example, Paris Hilton
, Nicole Richie
, and Lindsay Lohan
drinking, driving, hitting people/cars). Watch the trailer.
