Ovid and The Rainmaker
"The purpose of law is to prevent the strong from always having their way." – Ovid, 1st-Century Roman Poet.
I especially like this quote since it relates to the practice of personal injury law in that the law protects, or is supposed to protect, the victims and the injured against the big business tactics of the insurance companies. If you haven’t seen the movie "The Rainmaker", or if you haven’t seen it lately, go rent it and pay particular attention to the way the insurance company operates. Of course justice prevails in the end so its a feel good movie for me (even if there are some jabs at the practice of law in the beginning of the movie); overall this is a great movie about how the powerful try to take advantage of the weak but how the law protects the little guy.
