"An Essay On Lawyers"

"You are separately represented, and no longer hidden and lost in the interests of others. That's something. The suit does not sleep; we wake it up, we air it, we walk it about. That's something." (Dickens, Bleak House.)
And as for the attitude of the lawyer: Lawyer Lowten, after finally seeing to his client's exit from his office, confides in another:
"'There never was a pestering bankrupt as that, since the world began, I do believe!' said Lowten, with the air of an injured man. 'His affairs haven't been in Chancery quite four years yet, and I'm damned if he don't come worrying here twice a week.'" (Dickens, Pickwick Papers.)
