In over thirty years of practicing law only once has a film so inspired me that I felt compelled to discuss it in a speech to my entire firm. That film was Michael Clayton, which was released in 2007 and starred George Clooney.
If you haven’t seen this movie I highly recommend that you do. If you have, and you would like a vivid reminder of the reason our society needs plaintiffs’ attorneys, watch it again. I am proud to be on the front lines in the battle against corporate corruption and greed.
