    you just can't help yourself from making negative comments. Glad I'm not a lib, life is too short.

    I try not to criticize people who have spent their entire adult lives serving others. As an "LDS" I'd think you'd be more understanding of those who have helped the growth of the church you claim membership in.

    1st it’s was the over-extravagance of the “fine and precious”, the pride of the newest stores selling “Costly apparel” with City Creek, that I’m still not quite over.
    Now an Apostle dedicating a Law Office there?

    And this is something to be proud of?

    Yikes!

    Why should it rub you at all that a former member of the Utah Supreme Court would dedicate a law building? Dallin Oaks will be in his current church assignment until the day he dies. Hopefully you don't mind if he takes a little personal time every now and again.

    "Does the LDS Church send these men to other business openings"

    Dallin H. Oaks is a former Utah State Supreme Court justice. Is there a problem with a person having those credentials dedicating a law office?

    I strongly doubt Timp has any more ethics than 99% of the commentors out there.

    I first dealt with the church's attorneys decades ago in a city far away. It was alleged that the church owed a few thousand dollars to someone. Three times I reported that I could not locate the individual. Each time, I was encouraged to look again, so the debt could be fairly paid. Eventually, I found an address in a stack of old christmas cards addressed to a deceased member. The debt was paid in full.
    Now I know the jokes -- 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name, etc., etc., etc. But ethically, this bunch stands out. In well over forty years of practice, I've never met folks with higher morals.
    ...and remember, one of Jesus' roles is to serve as an advocate.

    I'm not sure which part of it rubs me the wrong way; that an apostle presided over the grand opening of a law firm or that the DN wrote about it. Both seem a bit tacky to me.

    Unbelievable. I have no words.

    This seems weird...
    Does the LDS Church send these men to other business openings, as well? Hospitals? Charities? Libraries? Schools?
    Attorneys? Hmmm....not sure about ........

    Well, i guess I've now seen it all. You have to be kidding me. I strongly doubt this law firm has any more ethics than 99% of the lawyers out there.
