Whatever happened to good old fashioned ambulance chasing?  Err, I mean personal injury lawyers.  I am drawn to the field of medical malpractice like a moth to the flame.....

i want to go into a small firm, so there may be some of this involved...

What is the 'conscience quotient' of everyone?
I gather from some of the UG posts that they would sell their own mother just to get in.  This leaves me terrified as to what they will do when they get out!
I have a damnable conscience that won't let me be a di*k to everyone (although there are a special few).
One of my goals as a lawyer is to be able to live with myself.  What about you?  Does the almighty dollar provide a sleep aid for you, or are you people of principle?  No judgement here, as I have already been whore to the almighty buck
