Is There No End to the Good that Lawyers Can Do?

Shyster approves of lawyers giving money to youth baseball.

For the past four years, [the Tallahassee law firm of Fonvielle, Lewis, Foote & Messer] has been the biggest supporter of youth baseball, donating $4,500 annually to cover the cost of uniforms for nine teams in the Dizzy Dean League at all six city parks.

Shyster also approves of cognitive dissonance:

Not only does their sponsorship help to put a well-dressed team on the field, but it's a morale boost, Messer said.

“The more professional you look, the more professional you feel and the more competent you feel. I think it makes for a better team . . ."

This from a group of high-priced private practice attorneys who look like this:

There is nothing more professional and competent than three lawyers with two pairs of Dockers between them. Sharks, I tell you. Sharks!
