Have you noticed, post-election, the reduction in frequency and urgency of television advertisements by the “billboard lawyers?”

Could their post-election relaxation of advertisement intensity be an indicator of how much their businesses might have been put at risk had they kept a lower profile had an antagonist been elected governor?

Sadly, it now appears more than ever that the only way a young person can achieve a rewarding career is either to exit the state or be involved in an auto accident with a truck that has a name on it. Or — perish the thought — join their ranks by becoming an injury lawyer.
