Every day it's something sleazier...
Sounds sleazy to me, too.
Since lawyers are in the business of suing and taking a share of the outcome, they ought to acknowledge that that is what they are really doing.
In that case, they ought to be able to write off REAL expenses (but not their own fees) as legitimate business expenses in the year those expenses are incurred.
Now if they were taking a free up front, the formula would change, naturally.
But the way it works now where lawyers take a percentage of the settlement, lawyers are really more like CO plantiffs of the suit.
Separate names with a comma.
