lawyers write to the chamber of commerce

Lawyers under attack? It happens. In an open letter from the American Bar Association (ABA) to the US Chamber of Commerce, the ABA writes that attacking lawyers has been "a popular sport since the time of Shakespeare." The Chamber of Commerce has an ad campaign that places the burden of high costs of products and clogged courts upon lawyers. The ABA is asking the commerce organization to reconsider its advertising, and divert its efforts towards "the real needs of its members."
