About this title


The legal system and the lawyers who operate in (and around) it have influenced society and continue to do so today. In this age of the slip-and-fall, false” advertising, and medical malpractice,” it’s clear that the quest for justice has not always been easy it’s also been hilarious, poignant, enlightening, and scandalous.

Words from renowned lawyers, not-so-renowned lawyers, judges, authors, politicians, philosophers, and preachers make up this collection of over five hundred memorable, bite-sized quotations about the lives of lawyers; the law; landmark cases; and quips, jokes, and humorous sayings.

Included in this diverse compendium are quotations by and about lawyers and law:

The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience.” U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

The law does not pretend to punish everything that is dishonest. That would seriously interfere with business.” Clarence Darrow

We do not get good laws to restrain bad people. We get good people to restrain bad laws.” G. K. Chesterton

A lawyer will do anything to win a case sometimes he will even tell the truth.” Patrick Murray

From the Back Cover:

The Quotable Lawyer is a marvelous collection of more than 500 memorable sayings about the lives of lawyers and the law. By turns moving, hilarious, poignant, and profound, these priceless bits of wisdom are culled from famous and not-so-famous lawyers, judges, authors, and politicians from throughout history and around the world.
This book promises--within the reasonable and practicable bounds outlined above--to provide hours (alas, unbillable) of entertainment and enlightenment. It makes a perfect gift for the lawyer in the family, the lawyer of the family, or anyone interested in the law and its development from ancient times to the present day.
