Why Everyone Hates Lawyers

Although I am a pastor, I have also been a member of The Florida Bar since 1999. In other words, I’ve been a lawyer for over 20 years. It seems like people love to hate lawyers, until they need one. In Episode 42, Steph and I talk about everything from OJ Simpson to Casey Anthony to downloading a will from the internet (Spoiler Alert: Don’t Do That!). Are lawyers all in it just for the money, or is there something else driving them? Why did I choose to become a lawyer? What are some of the differences between criminal law and civil law? What kind of law did I practice? This is an honest conversation that will give you an insider’s perspective on the practice of law, for better or for worse.
