What you can do is lie. Truth in advertising? Ha! Show me a commercial from a lawyer and tell me with an honest face that they are being truthful.
It seems like you can't watch any show on local TV without being bombarded with lawyers trolling for business. Some will say insurance companies are dishonest and full of bullies. Some will try to convince you that some medication you took while pregnant harmed you. Some will say that hip transplant was faulty. Some are going after priests, trying to convince you that somewhere, sometime long ago, you were molested in church. Some even have washed up actors singing their praises in the same canned commercial shown across the country but with names changed for the respective market.
Each one of these lawyer is making a case against some deep pocket defendant before you even speak with them. Each commercial is misleading. Each one is made to get you thinking you deserve money because of certain circumstances. Each one promises big bucks.
Big bucks for the lawyer that is. Let's not act like they are doing this out of the bottom of their hearts. They are chasing ambulances in 30 second spots. I'd like for it to stop.
What does it take to get these commercials to stop? Tort reform? Legislation to stop these ads? Anyone know?
