I agree with Woody. One of my most enjoyable recent reads was "The Litigators" by John Grisham. It is currently having a great run on the paperback best seller list. Every time I see the father and son team on TV trolling for business,it makes me think of Oscar and Harry the two trial lawyers in the book. Even their dog is named AC (ambulance chaser) It is an eye opener to the world of trial lawyers but with a bit of humor thrown in. Personally I think that the law should require that the "Settlement" advertised should be the bottom line amount the plaintiff actually received. If that is what currently happening - good. What used to be an honorable profession that did not stoop to commercialization has become so overcrowded that (it) has become as professional as a title loan office or a pawn shop.I have enough court room experience to be able to say that there is more truth than fiction in "The Litigators".
