Brisbane Legal new legal blog

Dear Sandpit readers,

I have a new blog, which focuses on the law and related issues. It is intended to appeal to lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

The blog will comment on practical issues which will inform people of what to expect and how to deal with lawyers, the courts etc. Already I have a post about how you can help your own legal case.  I will post about topics such as why legal fees are so high and how you can reduce your legal fees in the coming weeks.

The blog will also comment about various legal issues. Already it has posted about the law of negligence, disciplinary proceedings against lawyers and criminal law. Having practiced in a number of areas, I have a reasonably broad knowledge of the various areas of law.

So please check it out and feel free to comment. Any feedback, positive or negative, would be appreciated.

I would also like to thank Ray for some advice on the technical aspects of wordpress.

Legal Good time, Legal lime time, and Justice

One of my passions is justice and I suppose my view of what is actaully just is very much a product of my life experience and I expect that I’m much like most people in that respect. Unlike some on in the profession of getting Crims off so that they can minimise the consequences of their abhorrent social behaviour I don’t actaully have much time for the excuse that some sort of mood disorder like depression should be used as an argument in mitigation when they are being sentenced:

Even those with mood disorders like depression know the difference between right and wrong and really only those people suffering from mental illnesses severe enough to totally  destroy their reason deserve to get substantial leniency for their criminal acts.

Perhaps the time has come to make it clear that such excuses are actaully just bullshit invented by the whores of the legal, profession (members of the Bar) who spend their time grasping at any reason to argue that their criminal clients should get a lighter sentence than they deserve, worse still are the judges who buy into such bullshit and provided the leniency sought by members of the oldest legal profession.

Cheers Comrades
