Thank goodness law firms are so full of it. I honestly don’t think I’d have as much fun writing this column if firms weren’t so clumsily sanctimonious.

First, let me say that I’ve been around the block. I don’t expect purity from Big Law. I get that firms serve controversial, sometimes yucky, clients. If you eliminated all the polluters, tax dodgers, monopolizers and scoundrels from their roster, almost every brand name firm would close shop tomorrow. And we certainly don’t want that.
