Philadelphia Commerce Court Judge Mark I. Bernstein spoke with attorney Charlotte E. Thomas about his views on the current state of legal practice in Philadelphia. Thomas says Bernstein's mantra is simple and, in theory at least, it should be easy for all lawyers to follow. Lawyers should be righteous in their legal practice -- and that means righteous not only to the clients they represent, but also to the court and opposing counsel. Bernstein has some suggestions that the bar should take to heart.
