Greed Is Good... Sometimes

I like lawyers like Greedy Trial Lawyer. I'm not as greedy as he is. Greed is a powerful motivator. It makes us get up and go to work in the mornings, or at least most of us.

However, you have to balance that greed with a bit of honor, a dash of integrity, and some common sense, otherwise you end up in more trouble than you bargain for.

Kind of like Brayton Purcell did. In a case in Ohio, it appears that Brayton Purcell got caught with its hand in the cookie jar, trying to collect from multiple sources on a single client and not being... terribly straight... with the facts. The defendants in one of the cases caught wind of it and moved to have the case dismissed and for Brayton Purcell's ability to practice law in Ohio revoked.

Apparently Judge Hanna agreed with the facts as layed out by the defendants and did just that today.
