Eye of the Lawyer

E-mail Print PDF

We think it's pretty silly for lawyers to compare litigation to fighting, but the analogy is probably permanently in place. Maybe it's just easier to look at yourself in the mirror every morning if you view yourself as a warrior, going to battle for those who can't defend themselves, rather than a guy who files motions out of a form book. But, you'd think someone who has actually been a professional boxer would understand that the two things are not at all alike:



We admit that working your way through law school by boxing actually sounds really awesome. But, when you go shopping for a lawyer, do you really want someone who is that hung up on something he used to a decade ago? His website is decked out with the boxing theme, and his profile even includes his boxing accolades and record (6-1, with 3 KOs).

Perhaps credentials as an attorney would be more relevant?
