It seems like there is a lot of work. And it seems that the lawyers doing it are a bunch of dumbshits.

Is it that most lawyers don't want to deal with the family matters? And the lawyers that end up in the field are bottom of the barrel dumbasses?

It's a dead area of law.

dead as in there is no demand for them? Seems like family members ripping each other off is pretty common.

I had no idea how much money there is out there until I started this deal. trust banks who wont touch anything less than 10 million.

Lawyers who don't want to work for 300 an hour because they don't have room for "another litigation file". wtf

I passed on law school because my pension numbers started skyrocketing every year I stay. But for fuck sakes I have a lot of time in the courtroom testifying, am pretty good at it. I could go to Thurgood Marshall for 60,000 and apprentice with a small litigator for a couple of years.

criminal defense lawyers make their rep by taking tough cases. Couldn't someone do that in probate. I think jurys are the same in criminal and civil trials. most of them have a snse of justice and idea for what is basically right or wrong.

Im going to go sit in on the probate court I will be going to for a couple of days and see what goes on.
