Wikiquotes wisdom for lawyers and clients, especially an instance aimed at the lawyers.

This Wikiquotes page; this item:

About half the practice of a decent lawyer consists of telling would-be clients that they are damned fools and should stop.

Elihu Root, quoted in Philip C. Jessup, Elihu Root (Hamden, Conn.: Archon Books, 1964), vol. 1, p. 133, as cited by Lloyd B. Snyder, "Is attorney-client confidentiality necessary?", Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics, Spring 2002, p. 33.

Nice quote, but relevant to what?

This link.

Would anybody besides a damned fool have expected any different outcome?
