I respect that.
And by me respecting your views, I'm not going to try and beat you down with mine.
All I will say is I've seen it 1st hand, live in person, and that same person had the chance to take a large sum of money to make it go away but didn't. Now she's the head of multiple DV victim organizations across the country, empowering many women to take the same path, which is why I'm a firm believer in standing your ground for what you believe is right no matter how damaging it may be.
That's awesome, truly is, but that's such a rarity and the exception. But good for that person to be big and brave enough to do it. As a firm do you look at your clients as 'soft minded' when they want to settle and advise otherwise or is it just your personal position?
Personal position based on what I've seen and been through which is why I've been consistently saying "I'm a firm believer" meaning these are my beliefs. I'm not trying to get anyone on board with my beliefs, I'm just shedding light on some different viewpoints than the majority. I also said "this goes for men and women" to let it be known that my beliefs aren't just about her.
I also never said Greg was fully innocent in regards to what happened that night between the two.
As far as clients go, when you have a legit case that can make a real impact in this country and decide to settle for the money instead, yes I consider you "soft minded" ... If it makes sense to settle, lets say you had a slip and fall accident at work because the janitor didn't put the caution while wet signs, then I have no problem with that at all. My issues are with bigger things like DV, rape, police brutality, racial profiling, etc.
