The spirit of Atticus Finch is alive, well and living at!

Concerned Legal Watchdog has left a new comment on your post, "You too can be crazy like a tick and still get certified to practice law in Manitoba!"

You think that's something? This guy was nutsoid, but at least he didn't hurt anyone beside himself. If you want something interesting to read about for lawyers in your province of Manitoba, check out what David Davis was up to in 2001 or Grant Golightly in 1995. It's a goddam crying shame what lawyers think they can get away with.

Check out my blog The spirit of Atticus Finch is dead -all lawyers are crooks and all lawyers nowadays want to do is gratify themselves, make money and cut corners. They're lechers, you're better off without one. More power to you and your buddy in defending yourself!

Dear Concerned:

Thank you for writing. We checked out your Blog and highly recommend the article currently posted - well said indeed!

What we don't understand about Counselor Trachtenberg is he's always so nasty to us yet we've made him a ton of money since he first started billing the Canadian taxpayer funded Manitoba Metis Federation way back in 2003 - over $150,000?

You're right about self-representing. Correspondence between opposing attorneys is normally kept private, however, that does not apply in our case. If it did, Murray Trachtenberg would have been all over us like a cheap shirt having filed 500 complaints with the Law Society of Manitoba. What can LSM do take away our license to practice we don't have?

Keep up the great work on your Blog which we'll bookmark and regularly check. We'll send a copy of your e-mail to author Philip Slayton ( Curious. Are you based in the United States or Canada?

Atticus Finch is a major character in Harper Lee's Pulitizer Prize - winning novel To Kill A Mockingbird. He's a lawyer, local politician and resident of Maycomb County, Alabama and father of Jeremy Atticus "Jem" Finch and Jean Louise "Scout" Finch - one of the central characters in the novel, arguably the single central character.

As a descendant of Simon Finch, an apothecary from England who settled near Maycomb, rather than stay in the family homestead (named "Finch's Landing"), Atticus went to Montgomery to study law. He was later elected to the Alabama State Legislature, was then re-elected without opposition many times and was known as a respected, hard-working lawmaker (although it's never stated whether he was a member of the Alabama house of Representatives or the Alabama Senate.

While a legislator, he met and married the future mother of Jem and Scout Finch (who is never named, although it is mentioned that she was fifteen years his junior). His wife died of a heart attack two years after Scout, their youngest child, was born. Throughout the novel, Atticus lives in Maycomb with his two children and his maid, Calpurnia. He has one sister, who has very different ways of bringing up children and wants to make Scout more feminine.

Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch

"..... There is one institution that makes a pauper the equal of Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of any Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any College President. That institution, gentleman, is a court."
