It is disreputable to hunt up defects in titles or other causes of action and inform thereof in order to be employed to bring suit...
Страница 264 - The most worthy and effective advertisement possible, even for a young lawyer, and especially with his brother lawyers, is the establishment of a well-merited reputation for professional capacity and fidelity to trust.
