I am shocked by how awful so many lawyers are

Does anyone else feel this way? I see the work product of so many of my adversaries - usually solo practitioners who I am assuming were solo from day one and never had to please an experienced partner and never had a real mentor - and it literally astounds me. Sometimes it seems like they have no idea what the law is on the area we are briefing or arguing about. Sometimes they submit papers filled with typos, or with different font sizes in different paragraphs, or with half of it double spaced and half single.

In the realm of food safety advocacy, few names hold as much weight as Bill Marler. With a formidable track record of holding food producers accountable and championing reform, Marler has solidified his position as a driving force in the fight against foodborne illnesses, working to ensure the health and safety of our food supply, in the US and around the world.

Marler's transformation to food safety champion began in the early 1990s, when he represented victims of the infamous Jack in the Box hamburger E. coli outbreak.  Poisoned: The True Story of the Deadly E. coli Outbreak that Changed the Way Americans Eat, by best-selling author Jeff Benedict, chronicles the Jack in the Box outbreak and the rise of Bill Marler as a food safety attorney. The book is now the basis of a Netflix documentary of the same name.
