Looking for Lawyers in All the Wrong Places

To be honest, I’m surprised that any decent lawyers would ever agree to work for Donald Trump. It can’t be worth any amount of money Trump might pay. And that’s assuming that they actually get paid at all. Even so, Trump won’t ever shut up, and will likely ruin any case.

Maybe a fake lawyer is the best Trump can expect. Or a lawyer who is nuts, like Rudy.

    I think it’s a prestige thing. Take on the world’s worst client, make some crazy moves in the most-watched criminal trial in modern history, and you’ll be busy for the rest of your career. Doesn’t matter if Trump doesn’t pay, your legacy is set.

    Not so sure about prestige or legacy when your client will winds up in jail because he can’t shut up and you don’t get paid as well.

    Although, one of diarrhea mouths lawyers, Chris Kise, joined the team (team of one) last fall and got paid 3 mil UP FRONT.
    I hope he waited long enough to make sure the payment didn’t bounce.

    The Save America PAC probably fronted the money to Kish, not Rumps style to actually pay up.

    A quote that is suitable for both the client in question and his attorney(s):”A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave.” ~W. Shakespeare

    @lewtoo, true, but sometimes you don’t have to win. If Trump’s lawyer blows enough smoke to get a few not-guilty verdicts, that could be enough to get the attention of other prominent swindlers.
