The greatest power that the Oppressor has is the mind of the oppressed.  Steven Biko

 In a corrupt society, the truth can be found in what is forbidden to say.

"This crisis of confidence in the impartiality of the judiciary is real and growing."  "Left unaddressed, the perception that justice is for sale will undermine the rule of law that courts are supposed to uphold." 

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor - 2010

How do you feel about lawyers working on a contingency basis?

 

"I think all lawyers should be on contingencies.  It forces them to do the right thing. I don't know if the hourly lawyer has the same incentives to get to the bottom line.  I think the whole world should be on a contingency basis.  If you don't cure the problem, you shouldn't be paid."
