Quote from Justice Warren E. Burger,

"... ours is a sick profession marked by incompetence, lack of training, misconduct and bad manners. Ineptness, bungling, malpractice, and bad ethics can be observed in court houses all over this country every day ... these incompetents have a seeming unawareness of the fundamental ethics of the profession. ... the harsh truth is that ... we may well be on our way to a society, overrun by hordes of lawyers, hungry as locusts, and brigades of judges in numbers never before contemplated."


Justice Warren E. Burger (more quotes by Justice Warren E. Burger or books by/about Justice Warren E. Burger)

(1907-1995) Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court (1969-1986)
