This is MUST reading for all Law students and those who wish to understand the 'Business' of the 'Practice of Law'.
Read HAPPY HOUR IS FOR AMATEURS; a Lost Decade in the World's Worst Profession by Philadelphia Lawyer 'P.J.'. This blows the shorts off the Law Firm business of 'Billable Hours' and Sue anyone and everyone who has Money or Insurance. While the author is a total unabashed alcohol and drug abusing Hedonist, he tells it they way it is, and it is not pretty to hear. He does not address private practice, but works his way down from Advocacy to the Bottom-Feeding field of Personal Injury cases, working for a predatory Firm that works him to the bone, constantly tries to keep him on the defensive and give only half a bonus, promising to forward the rest later, at an unspecified time, if circumstances permit. This guy would have been better working at a dog racing track chasing the scented Lure.
I have not read anything like this in a long time. The man has a clear head and true talent for Invective. It's like Henry L. Mencken has been reincarnated as a Lawyer and has not fallen for all the bromides and self-justifying B.S. spit out by the Smartest Guys in the Room. Talk about Wage Slavery!
Half the time one is laughing and the other half of the time sickened by the Greed and Self-Serving of these so-called professionals. Read and weep, and never trust an Attorney!
