I think the practice of law is an honorable profession. And I enjoy my work. I have wonderful clients and interesting cases. All of my clients are reasonable, professional and ethical. And most of the lawyers I encounter are the same. That’s the way it’s supposed to work.
Unfortunately, once in awhile, a fellow lawyer does something to give our profession a black eye. Someone like William Ogletree from Houston. Mr Ogletree left his jacket at a pizza place in the Houston airport. But it’s not his fault. It’s the fault of the food court or the airport or the City for failing to “collect the coat, keep it in a secure place and hold it for a reasonable time.”
Unbelievable. Read the letter and a Smoking Gun article here.
