I suppose by now I should realize that one reason everyone hates lawyers is that they think them largely unnecessary. Like doctors and pilots. I mean, anyone can remove their own appendix or fly themselves across the country, right? And lots of people — at least 50 to 60% of U.S. adults — can read. So who needs lawyers when they can read the law for themselves?
Thankfully, Ray McEdward of Madera provides a shining example that being able to read does not a lawyer make.
