    lawyers and lawyer/judges pretending to hold themselves accountable. they are the funniest boobs on earth. (they honestly believe the public is clueless. they really do) their system of justice, established by and for them and run by them is an utter flop as Churchill liked to say.

    they could not care less- as long as the money is outrageous and their power keeps flowing, you and i are nothing. someday soon, their twisted web of fraud and greed will send shockwaves thru the American Achilles' heel and all external threats will pale in significance. mark the words of the canons

    Welcome to Pennsyltucky! Where the Judicial Mafia meet the Hatfields and the McCoys of the Bar Association. Pennsylvanians are in trouble. If the members of Bar Association with functioning moral compasses do not start showing some kind of backbone, calling out corrupt judges and sociopath colleagues--the politically well connected law firms who practice extortion and other crimes--the wisdom of the people may kick in at some point and disturb the status quo--just as this paper suggested a few years ago in an editorial.

    It is a shame when you are put in a position when you feel as though you need to hire an attorney to supervise your hired attorney. Clients are in a position where they are at the mercy of their attorneys-- to trust that they are working in their best interests, especially when they are working behind closed doors and when transparency of the case that affects the attorney-client relationship is practically non-existent. When that same client is paying upwards of $300 /hr, they deserve the very best; sadly, ethical lawyers don't seem to exist anymore.
