    I think most are honest but when the audit firm like Arther Anderson went down all the clients want to know they have a good lawyer. I thank you Never change a lawyer, doctor and accountant as they know all about you I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA

    Dr. Vincent Peal in his book a very good example. He was in the office of the lawyer. The telephone rang. He picked up replied, rand again , replied again then the lawyer said, "I hope this telephone does not give me a headache" Dr. Peale said," Thank the Lord that there is noise. When the phone does not ring you will out on the street wondering what happened to the human race." This show the persistance of the lawyers, never give up inn summer or winter. Practice like the insurance agencies read the policies again and again just in case a phrase missed out may cost them a fortune. I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
