Summary:

Past President of the American Bar Association, Janofsky poses questions about the obligation of attorneys to provide services. He speaks of public image and how attorneys attribute that problem to a lack of understanding of what we do. When lawyers treat the system of justice as a game designed to fatten their pocketbooks, the whole system is debased.
