Okay, reading another report about how many medical errors cause deaths among Americans here, and I am starting to wonder why  no criminal charges are filed against physicians/hospitals who cause deaths.  (According to Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, the criminal charges can be shot down by a small-town judge and not be appealed…)

Lawyers are a popular target, because our citizenry suffers from epidemic jealousy of anyone who has the potential to make a lot of money. However, without lawyers and courts, the wealthy and the oppressors cannot be combatted.

The same article by Saul Segan:  Tort Reform—Another Dangerous Scapegoat, published on the Huffington Post website does make a valid point when discussing lawyers–people love to hate them,but everyone needs one at some point.  And, when the chips are down, you want a good attorney who will help you in your fight, because let’s face it:  we all have to fight somewhere and some time.  Every person will have some sort of dispute:  custody disputes, divorces, wills and estates, property disputes, criminal issues, injuries, problems with jobs, etc.  No person can escape the fact that at some point in time, he or she will be calling for some sort of legal advice, because the law is equated with determining our rights.  Who doesn’t want to know what their rights are?
