Are Speeding Lawyers “good guys” or “bad guys”?
DriveProtect has been running for 10 Years this month!
During that time I’ve met a lot of speeding lawyers…
Lawyers are one of those professions that people love to hate. I must confess that I used to dislike them myself…
From a young age it’s been presented to us in the mainstream media that lawyers are a drain on society.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I was “binge watching” a — really good — series on Netflix called Criminal.
In one of the episodes, the lawyer was portrayed as a bumbling idiot, and in another the solicitor was characterised as a sociopath who would do anything to get a murderer off the hook (my memory is a little foggy but that was the gist).
When I thought about it, it was really clear to me that throughout my life, lawyers have been portrayed as parasites who are who are basically mercenaries for hire by any criminal, no matter how despicable!
I remember thinking when we were considering setting up DriveProtect “oh no, that means I’m going to have to deal with LAWYERS!”.
It’s frightening how brainwashed we can become over time, without even realising it’s happening! At that time I’d barely ever met a solicitor, but there I was making judgements about them based on the conditioning I’d received throughout my life!
Well, after 10 years “in the business” I can tell you that most speeding lawyers I’ve met are actually really nice people…
Think about it — they HELP us fight back against the Government when they decide to attack us!
Many of them are pretty funny off the record and have proudly told me of how they’ve helped people who’ve been persecuted by the Police over speeding “offences”.
It’s true that good lawyers charge a lot of money. But did you know that the majority of that money goes to the legal firm they work for, and not to them directly?
Most lawyers just earn a normal salary like in any other profession.
I think there is a misconception that all lawyers are psychopathic leeches on society who are in it for the big money they supposedly earn.
My experience has been very different to that.
Yes, some have slightly big egos, others can be a little abrupt, and some don’t suffer fools.
But aren’t these traits all of us have to one degree or another?
I can tell you honestly that in my experience, lawyers — and speeding lawyers in particular — are really decent people who help people fight back against the immorality of the Government and Police who persecute us.
Over the last decade, my mind has been changed :-)
All the best,
