Every innocent until proven defendant is entitled to a zealous defense. Whether counsel cares about being looked down upon by even ambulance chasers is another matter.

Juli Haller was part of Donald Trump's legal brigade in Michigan, filing a lawsuit alongside the ubiquitous Sidney Powell that claimed absentee vote counts were likely manipulated by a computer algorithm developed by allies of deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez.

Even if they could it would have to be cash up front, you know most of these people are getting a crisp I.O.U's

They didn't bust him in 2016 when he was receiving OBVIOUS help from foreign adversaries what makes you think they're gonna bust him on campaign finance fraud?

But Bernie had emails.

"A Democrat Governor, a Democrat Secretary of State, and a Democrat Attorney General have joined a Democrat-appointed, Democrats-confirmed judge to ask a disciplinary body appointed and superintended by a Democrat-controlled state entity to kill the careers of Republican lawyers for advancing what is a mainstream Republican position on the 2020 Presidential Election."

It is indeed a mainstream Republican position. What it is not is truthful, honest or backed in even the slightest by any factual evidence whatsoever. That's a very important distinction that is being glossed over here. Much like the entire farrago that is the MAGA lawyer brigade.

I'm not necessarily against MAGA people hiring incompetent lawyers to defend them....

True, but U.S. attorneys are also officers of the courts they're licensed in.

Ie, you're not supposed to just make sh*t up.

I'm surprised that lawyers have a bad reputation given that they are willing to have lying trump scumbags as their peers.

Unless they police their own, they are all the same.

They should be sanctioned by the court for that brief alone in their inability to use simple adjectives correctly such as "democratic."

Counsel to "Go suck start a shotgun" is generally frowned on by most local bar associations.

Of course, I'm not a lawyer, so they probably can't have me disbarred over such counsel; however, it might trigger some other liabilities....

Barely pass law school?

No.

Need money and have no morals?

Yes. No.

Not afraid of getting laughed out of a courtroom?

In the very unlikely event I ever end up representing a client in a courtroom, I would not be afraid of getting laughed out of it. That just wouldn't happen because I have morals and wouldn't file baseless claims - not even to get in on the MAGA money/grift. (What the hell is wrong with me? haha!)

Do you actually have to have a law degree?  I mean, as long as they're paying up front, I couldn't actually do worse that the lawyers they had before.

They're Republicans. That mob can never pass up any opportunity to be mean-spirited, ignorant and cultish, no matter how petty it may be.

No profession, agency, or business will self regulate.

The natural progression of human behavior, when mixed with power, is exploitation and evasion of accountability.

Police cannot regulate police,

Politicians cannot regulate politicians.

Doctors will not regulate doctors.

Lawyers will not regulate lawyers.

Yes, those who regulate must understand the business, but the days of regulation by themselves must end.
