Lawyers are definitely paid well when you get your practice running (even if you work in a good firm you're hopefully making good coin.) (I should note I am admittedly ignoring the vast number of lawyers who don't work for the big bucks, but less consider you an anomaly for a moment.)
But I don't generally see lawyers driving around in a selection of Bentley's and Rolls Royce's.
Call me poor, but I thought we were tightening the purse strings in this recession. Turns out The recession only applies to almost all of us, but not all...... Accusations of wealth being siphoned from the majority of Americans (98%) and funneled to the pockets of the exceptionally wealthy will pick up as Christmas sales come in. Overal luxury good sales were way way up. Somebody had cash to spend, and they decided to opt for lavish goods over knock off Gucci.
I gotta figure out how to get in on this racket.
