So simple – so obvious – yet 98% of the people don’t see it.
Remember the saying The 800 Pound Elephant in the Room?
Does anyone still believe that they have representation in Washington D.C.? Before you answer, take a look at how many lawyers are in our nations capital. The numbers tell the story. The only group of people that are represented in Washington is The American Bar Association.
In 1950, Washington D.C. had 1000 lawyers. In 1975 it had 11,000. By the mid-1990s, the number of lawyers had ballooned to approximately 65,000. By December 2009, the estimate had grown to 80,000 representing over 15% of the entire population of Washington D.C.
America now has over 70% of the lawyers in the world. One lawyer for every 250 citizens versus one lawyer for every 24,000 people in the rest of the world. Over 15 million lawsuits filed annually. That works out to one new lawsuit every two seconds!
