I always like to point out that you don’t see lawyers trying to get lawyer specific dispensation to lower malpractice premiums for lawyers. I don’t like paying malpractice premiums but, unlike many doctors, I’m not suggesting special consideration. I think it is crazy doctors want a special execptions – lawyers would never ask for such a thing.
Oops. Scratch that. I’ll take that arrow of supreiority out of my quiver. A New Jersey State Bar is pushing its state legislature to reduce the statute of limitations in malpractice actions against licensed professionals, which includes, of course, lawyers.
