Kansas City Lawyer Behind The Scenes



This morning Uncommon Courage pens a MUST READ POST regarding choices facing Kansas City lawyers.

Check the money line:

"One of the hardest things about being a lawyer is putting what you believe in before getting a big payday. Most people in law school believe that he or she can use their law license to better society. However, it's not as easy as it sounds. We all need to earn money. Too often, that paycheck becomes more important than a lawyer's principles and beliefs. It is easy to fool yourself into rationalization. I have rationalized my way through cases. I like to think I have put rationalization and self-deception behind, but too often we, as lawyers, lose sight of the principles in which we believe."

This is important advice and READING THE POST IN ITS ENTIRETY is ESSENTIAL for anybody contemplating a career in the legal field.

The only thing that will save KC, is gentrification. White people moving back in, fixing things, investing so blacks can fuck it up again.

The essential belief is maintaining a consistent cash flow at any cost. This is the only principle held by all shit head lawyers I've hired. Selling out your clients to the local D.A. is common practice these days. Shakespeare had the right idea years ago.
