Yes, that was their argument. In full disclosure, I am an attorney so I have a bias in this. I am not an ambulance chaser like Morgan and Morgan. I think that there is a fine line in advertising where you want people to have access to the justice system and you have to get the word out to do that then you have this crap which is just sad. In all likelihood, M&M never touches the case and just acts as a referral service and gets a fee. This is what Jim Sokolove did back in the day, remember those commercials?

Attorneys can certainly advertise tastefully but these giant mills seem to just try and smother out everyone else. I grew up watching those commercials! When my friend was in law school he told me about their racket, take the case and vend it out to another firm to do the work, take a cut as a finders fee. I have a hunch he rarely took cases unless there was serious meat on the bone.

That is 100% what they do, in fact Jim had a disclaimer at one point on his commercials that stated just as much.

Have you seen Jim Sokolove's yacht? Being a white trash ambulance chaser pays big.
