      I am constantly struck by how attorney advertising completely turns me off. Around here all the radio ads invariably include the words “large cash settlement” at some point in the ad. I certainly accept that civil law has its place, and helping people who have been legitimately harmed be made whole is a worthwhile vocation. But the ads never invoke that sentiment in me. They just feel like recruitment ads for plausible reasons to sue insurance companies.

      Some of this is probably just guilt by association (once you’ve heard the ads out their around talc and ovarian cancer that basically say “do have ovarian cancer and have ever used talcum powder?” to get in on the J&J lawsuits it’s hard to see legal ads as anything but trying to get as many possible claimants, no matter how weak the claim, as possible). My overall sense of civil tort law is that it is riddled with perjury and fraud, certainly the high-profile cases that involve matters I know something about strike me as fundamentally fraudulent. And every ad I see or hear just reinforces that.

      That billboard does distill this kind of advertising down to its essence though doesn’t it?

      YUp. The ones that really tick off are the Boy Scout ones. The lawyer forced the Scouts to accept high risk scoutmasters, then sued when the inevitable happened. I’m not saying all gays are molesters but the ones I knew liked young boys.

      Looks like a money maker.

      Always happy to see a lawyer making a solid living.

      That must be a particularly dangerous corner with not one but two ambulance chasers advertising there.

      The Boy Scout ones make me see red. As an Eagle and a longtime adult volunteer, I can’t respond to them rationally, and whoever is funding them would not want to meet me in person.
