Do lawyers really act like Saul?

Saul - Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have become pop culture phenomenon’s on Netflix.  One of the characters is the sleazy money hungry lawyer called Saul.  He wears the car salesman suit and fits the obnoxious mold that we expect attorneys to have.  He even has this endearing side and line of ethics that he will not cross, although he always tries to figure out a way to get what he wants without getting himself in trouble. As a lawyer, I can appreciate why people have stereotyped us, and why the show portrays Saul that way.  The purpose of this blog is...

You’re right.I do not know what it is like to be severely injured at work, what it is like to lose everything I own because I was hurt at work, not being able to get treatment because my employer and its insurance carrier won’t pay for it, not receiving a paycheck while I am off of work, and not being able to feed my family.But I will promise you this, it wears on my heart to know clients we represent are going through this.This is what I am here...
