No, the LAWS make it possible. The lawyer has a DUTY to inform his client of those options. A duty imposed on the lawyer by the LAW. The client has to be the one to choose that path (though some lawyers will push more than they are required to push, and that might make them a bad lawyer)

I am not defending these lawsuits, but we need to spread the blame around

Lawyers do not make Laws, lawyers work with the laws at hand for the benefit of their clients.

The laws are created and enacted by Government representing the YOU.

Most lawyers I know (including myself though I do not practice) are annoyed with laws that have been enacted in the last 15yrs or so mainly because they are ambiguous, inequitable, and extremely vague.

As an AC said above, a lawyer has a professional and ethical DUTY to inform a client of the current laws, though the lawyer also must inform a client of any ramifications that could occur too, as well as the lawyers DUTY to the court for such things as frivolous or vexatious suits.

That being said.. I did actually Laugh and do agree to an extent with Nina’s cartoon.
