We've all seen them, the nasty ones. They are critical of everything, always in a foul mood, and they suck the life out of law firms. For whatever reason, they are mean to clients. And they blame the clients for the lawyer's shortcomings as a lawyer and as a person. I make it my practice to avoid this kind of lawyer, and it is wise for you to do the same, constant reader.
Stay away from toxic lawyers. Let them be toxic and wallow in their own filth. Life is too short to spend much time around them.
Note: avoid toxic staff people too, but that's another topic for another day.
