    @ Mohokat: Your statement made me curious, so I looked it up - thought it was interesting so decided to share. No offense was meant. :) The rest of my comment was directed at those who slam attorneys - as you said, it is like a colonoscopy (or any other oscopy).

    I am not an attorney, I just appreciate the need for them.

    @ Kalindra I think I agreed with Mike. I said yea. They are like having a colonoscopy.

    You wouldn't be an attorney would you?

    Re: Attorney . . . disbarred . . . ."

    Yeah -- he's one of the 98% that make the rest of us look bad.

    It is sad that the firm he was with apparently weren't involved in this case. If he was able to take the money and case with him, it seems as if that would have put the nail in the coffin, up front.

    Integrity is vital for both attorneys and clients. Truth is truth and only the facts change.

    In the current Stewart case, I can't picture the lead attorney wanting this individual to be involved in this case anymore. The jeopardy is still there but so is the horrendous act that Stewart allegedly committed.

    I would not be looking in the telephone book for that name to represent me or anyone in 10 years, at least. He appears to have lied to the various levels of the investigation to the Supreme Court of Utah.

    That wouldn't be good on his resume or vitae.

    Having been disbarred for unethical conduct will probably enhance his resume. As noted above, that 's what some people want in an attorney.

    @ Mohokat: The most common profession in Congress is lawyer, but only about 1/3 of Congress are lawyers. This applies to the current Congress and is also the historical norm.

    As Mayhem Mike said, no one likes lawyers until they are accused of committing a crime, being sued, or want to sue someone else.

    @Mayhem Mike Yea kinda like a clonoscopy. Not to mention that through the years most of Congress have been Attorneys.Kinda makes sense.

    @ Teleste:

    Yeah, people "hate" lawyers until they need one! Then, they want the most competent, aggressive bulldog available.

    180 days suspension for stealing a clients money and then being evasive is a joke. A 5 year suspension is much more appropriate.
