    ITS TIME FOR THE MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYERS TO STOP GETTING
    PORTRAYED AS VILLIANS? OR MONEY HUNGRY PROFESSIONALS WITH NO
    LIMITS. I KNOW THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE FIGHTING FOR THE HELPLESS MY SISTER IN LAW DESERVED THE DESCION OF THE SYSTEM?
    IT SHOWS THAT LAWYERS WITH SKILLED KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAW ARE
    ADVOCATES OF THE RULE OF LAW AND THE BLIND EYES OF JUSTICE.
    MONEY CAN NEVER RESTORE THE MENTAL ANGUISH A PARENT OR LOVE ONE MUST GO THROUGH WHEN DEALING WITH MEDICAL SITUATION THAT LEAVES A LOVE ONE HURT INJURED OR DAMAGED ONLY THROUGH THE EYES OF GOD CAN FAITH AND HEALING BE PUT IN PLACE AND REMEMBER
    THE MEDICAL PROFESSION OWES A DUTY TO THE PUBLIC TO INSURE THAT BOTCHED SURGERY IN ANY FORM IS A VIOLATION OF ITS DUTY TO THE PUBLIC.
