It’s been a rough year for lawyers.
As of this week, they’ve already racked up a record $3.1 billion in fees.
The money has been going to the wrong people.
As a result, the legal profession is now a giant shell game, with a revolving door of lawyers forking out money to themselves, others, and others’ clients.
As Slate reports, the industry is still recovering from the collapse of the internet, which made it easy for people to make money from their own posts on social media.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
“This isn’t about money.
This is about a system that encourages people to get in on the action,” says Rachel Boorstein, a lawyer at the Law Offices of Rachel Borkowski in New York.
She says that while lawyers can make a lot of money, the practice of law “has become very lucrative.”
“People who want to be successful in the legal industry have become so dependent on their income that they don’t see the value in what they do,” she says.
A number of other experts say that the practice has become “very, very toxic.”
The big-money lawyers who are making money off their clients’ legal work are in a class of their own: the “specialty lawyers.”
These are lawyers who specialize in a particular area of law and don’t really know much about it, but make a career of pushing their clients to pay out tens of thousands of dollars for their work.
“Specialty” lawyers have become a way for them to make a living, and the big-dollar lawyers are only one of the ways that they can make that money.
In fact, many of the most prominent speciality lawyers make money off the practice, according to a recent study by the Law School Admission Council.
They earn millions of dollars from their work on behalf of their clients, and then take home more than $1 million per year from the practice.
Some of them also earn millions from their clients.
In addition, some specialty lawyers also receive some of their fees from clients who have not been paying them their full amount.
“There are many speciality law firms who charge clients millions of bucks and the clients often don’t realize it,” says David Hirschberg, a partner at the law firm of Hirschberger, Krasner, Hirsch, and Reichenbaum, who did the study.
“The fact that a lot and a lot are going to be getting paid from the pockets of their former clients, it’s really going to change how the industry operates.”
In addition to being a huge source of income for the lawyers, speciality fees also create a significant burden for the average person.
In a study by researchers at the University of Michigan and Northeastern University, more than half of the people surveyed experienced financial problems due to the fees they paid to speciality firms.
That included financial difficulties like “failing to pay bills and debts, being unable to afford an emergency fund, and losing access to a car, home, and credit card,” according to the study published in the American Journal of Public Health.
The study also found that the fees the average consumer pays to specialisys have “a substantial impact on their ability to access the financial resources they need to pay their bills, obtain emergency and disability insurance, and maintain their health care coverage.”
And as Slate reports: A survey of 1,872 Americans, conducted by the law school admission council and the Consumer Federation of America, found that more than one-quarter of respondents reported that their credit score had dropped because of the fees their specialty law firm charged.
The cost of specialty legal fees are so high that, according the American Bar Association, “a legal firm can expect to make between $1,500 and $4,000 in fees a year for every attorney they hire, depending on the firm’s size.”
Many of these fees are based on what speciality a lawyer has worked on, which can be difficult to know.
The law school admissions council’s Hirschfeld says that “specialist law firms are often charged more for the same work they did in the past.”
In a statement, the law schools admission council explained: The law schools admissions council is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that advocates for student achievement and access to the best law education.
As such, it receives no government funding.
The admission council’s goal is to provide the highest quality law education possible.
As with any legal practice, specialties can be profitable, and in some cases, they can help the average student graduate from college.
But that doesn’t mean that all lawyers are acting ethically, according an analysis of over 1,000 cases by the New York Times.
The Times analyzed thousands of legal briefs filed by the attorneys in more than 2,300 cases, and found that in most cases, the attorneys involved were
