    I think that view has crossed over into conventional wisdom among the public too. Ambulance chasers.

    It is like getting your law degree from the University of American Samoa. lol. Saul Goodman is hilarious.

    im a higher level lawyer and your noob skills are all whack. your shitty law practise still uses windows 95 on 386s and you can't connect them to your shitty dial up because the system updates would put your shit out of business for months

    ...and i seen you literally chasing ambulances on a moped. all your secretaries have bad boob jobs and collapsed pancake asses, joke shop makeup, perfume like a old ass lady. your catering is skittles and grape drank; you have bees hovering around your rectum


    i am assembling DCs case presently and i got dana white in my back pocket, you can't even settle a dispute with your own neighbour about a fallen down tree. go back to playing original ms dos doom and minesweeper while you wait for the phone to ring

    Lawyers have different levels of expertise in different fields. "Civil litigation" is broad term which really means any litigation not involving criminal law work. If Daniel Cormier proceeds with legal action against Jon Jones or the UFC, he will want a lawyer with expertise in sports law like James Quinn.

    Most lawyers would not consider personal injury near the bottom of the "lawyer-ladder" because there are more PI lawyers than silver stocking or white shoe lawyers. You'd be surprised to learn that proud ambulance chaser Glen Lerner outearns the partners at Sullivan Cromwell by tenfold. Experienced lawyers tend to respect each.

    It also depends on the type of personal injury lawsuit and your definition of a "truly elite firm." Rick Friedman's office is definitely elite and all they do is personal injury. Same for Baron & Budd, Edwards Kirby, Corboy & Demetrio.

    Elizabeth Cabraser recently secured a 10 billion dollar settlement on the Volkswagen class action. She's basically a PI lawyer.

    Kirkland Ellis is one of the largest and most respected firms in the world, and a few years back they represented the estate of a plaintiff who died on the waiting room floor in a NY hospital.

    Everyday personal injury lawyers help regular Americans who suffer injuries at the negligence of others. I'm not sure why that is something to look down on. Nor do I fully understand why working for a "elite law firm" that bills at $900 an hour representing multi-national corporation pollute water or lobby Congress is anything to consider prestigious.

    And that's a sad thing. Because most Americans will need a "regular lawyer" in their lifetime after being rear-ended, applying for SSDI, fighting a DUI, needing a divorce, drafting a will or filing bankruptcy. Very few Americans will need a corporate lawyer or IP counsel.

    BTW - there is no University of American Samoa Law School. But you would be surprised how many doctors have medical degrees from Caribbean or Mexican law schools.

    I actually wondered if that school actually exists. I assumed it didn't but didn't want to ruin the magic. it is hilarious. lol.

    I am surprised by how many doctors get their education through the military. Which isn't a bad program I don't think but it is hard to imagine some of these guys ever being in the military. lol

    Like even my Asian GI doc got his from the military. lol

    I'm a high level server at a fast food restaurant in the country of America and I can guarantee you Rousey's teeth could not bite through our well-done burgers after her knockout. If you ask me number 1 or number 2, I'd say she needs the mashed potato bowl.

    Very eloquently stated.

    I responded to the same post, as it seemed to strike and odd note.

    Forgetting the concept of 'dogbite' lawyer for a minute, it may be misguided to consider suing the UFC where two of the most marquee athletes in the sport are at issue in a PEDS scandal as a standard PI case.

    Whoever files on behalf of Cormier would make news, and stay in the news as it proceeds. It would be a high profile filing with a lot of media attention. Daniel Cormier wouldn't have any trouble finding representation.

    Interestingly, slip and fall cases are almost impossible to win and I don't take them anymore. Litigating them requires quite a bit of experience and craft, I wouldn't consider it pedestrian in the least. Juries hate them even in plaintiff-friendly counties. There is a common misconception that simply falling in Wal-Mart or on your neighbor's steps will get you a big, fat check. Nothing could be further from the truth. You have to establish that the cause of the fall was known or should have been known to the property owner but yet not so open and obvious that the plaintiff should have avoided the accident. Then you need substantial injuries to make the case worthwhile and juries still labor under the belief that everyone falls and these are just accidents and nobody is at fault.

    A lot of high level attorneys would want to see the contracts before claiming that there is a case.

    Without disagreeing with everything you said, I have no problem derogating lawyerdom as a profession generally. And sure, some PI lawyers make a lot of money. But *if* we are to start a discussion of being an 'elite' lawyer, as TS attempts to do, it's fair to say that PI plaintiff lawyers are not what people coming out of elite schools aim to become .... and if you surveyed lawyers generally, of all kinds, they'd be sitting near the bottom in perceived prestige.

    So yeah, I'm not saying that being a Wachtell partner is the only possible metric of lawyering prestige, obv, but on average, the worst lawyers from the worst schools who are saddled with the most limited career options tend to work the PI plaintiff circuit. Doesn't mean you don't have some incredible PI lawyers and some really terrible big firm partners out there --- obviously --- but that's the reality of it.

    Being a top level lawyer myself I can tell you I make a ton of money on personal injuries. I've destroyed lives with my skills and abilities.
