Most lawyers I know have spent a lot of money and time getting that Juris Doctorate degree which gives them a level of baseline knowledge regarding “law”. This baseline knowledge builds the foundation for much more study so they can take the Bar Examination, hopefully successfully. They continue their education throughout their careers by attending still more classes to stay up to date on the latest laws, case law and opinions.
They spend thousands of dollars every year to have access to the information they need to apply their skills and knowledge in the particular area of expertise they have chosen to practice law.
Yet here on Facebook, we have people who like to think, because they can find a particular section in a State Code, they are lawyers and have a command of the English language that allows them to decide what is appropriate application of a law. Some lawyer friends used to call them Barber Shop Lawyers.
To those people. SHUT THE FUCK UP!
