As we approach the Yuletide Season I look forward with great anticipation as to how the media advertisers on radio, television, billboards, newspapers, etc. will display their concern for the victims of automobile, school bus and tractor trailer accidents in the Spirit of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s:
1. Perhaps they will start the holidays with a generous $25.00 donation to the less fortunate persons at the Community Kitchen for the homeless who probably don’t have an automobile, ride a school bus, or travel on the freeways in danger of getting hit by a tractor trailer;
2. Can we expect a lawyer from Alabama dressed up in an Elvis outfit riding in Santa Claus’ sleigh as he delivers presents to injured victims of traffic accidents? Hopefully “Santa won’t have a wreck so he won’t need a check.”
3. Who will be the first media “railroad derailment” law firm to espouse their expertise in the tragic Tacoma, Washington Amtrak accident by standing on top of a railcar and subtlety soliciting death cases before the victims are buried or the injured released from the hospital?
4. Will the new male divorce firm from St. Louis go after any errant wives caught kissing a fellow male employee under the mistletoe at the traditional holiday party?
5. During the “reason for the season” can we expect Bible verses from the “Best of the Best” in the legal community expressing their concern for the injured in traffic accidents that need their expert legal advice?
6. And, will the 99.5% of reputable non-deceptive lawyers continue their efforts to obtain legal justice in the best interests of their clients without resorting to expensive media costs that benefit mainly advertising agencies and the minority of legal advertisers?
Happy Holidays from the non-television, radio, billboards, or newspaper advertising Grinch from Chattanooga.
