J. Hector St. John de Crèvecœur – Lawyers are plants that grow in any soil

Share this quote:
Lawyers are plants that will grow in any soil that is cultivated by the hands of others; and when once they have taken root they will extinguish every other vegetable that grows around them. The most ignorant, the most bungling member of that profession will, if placed in the most obscure part of the country, promote litigiousness, and amass more wealth without labor, than the most opulent farmer, with all his toils.

Louis Brandeis – Lawyers and protection of the people

Share this quote:
Louis BrandeisInstead of holding a position of independence, between the wealthy and the people, prepared to curb the expenses of either, able lawyers have, to a large extent, allowed themselves to become adjuncts of great corporations and have neglected their obligation to use their powers for the protection of the people. We hear much of the “corporation lawyer,” and far too little of the “people’s lawyer.”

Louis Brandeis   (1856-1941)
