“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers!” – Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part II, Act IV.
Often misquoted and severely misinterpreted, this phrase was actually Shakespeare’s tribute to our profession. The accolade was spoken by an anarchist who sought to overthrow the government. In this very phrase, Shakespeare acknowledges that attorneys are the front line defenders of the Constitution, civil liberties and rights, and the rule of law. In order to achieve anarchy you must rid society of the people who uphold the law.
