Quotes for Lawyers

Lawyers put some thought-provoking quotes in their emails — often in a signature block.  Here are a few favorites of mine that I have seen.  I have not verified the accuracy of the attributed sources or the quotes, but I still like the ideas these quotes convey.

  • “It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly, one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.” — Sherlock Holmes (A Scandal in Bohemia)
  • “If you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur.” — Red Adair
  • “If you want to converse with me, first define your terms.” — Voltaire
  • “I […] never could make a good impromptu speech without several hours to prepare it.” — Mark Twain
