I've little sympathy with lawyers having had a few experiences with them which cost me dearly in fees.
Anyone who has dealt with lawyers who charge extortionate fees will be overjoyed to know that some Edinburgh lawyers are being forced to take a 50% pay cut.
Tods Murray, one of the Scottish law firms big in property and finance, has revealed that profits payable to its 43 members (formerly partners) crashed from £8.7m to £4.5m over the last two years to last March.
That means the average payout per lawyer has fallen from £197,873 three years ago to £104,975 last year.
Don't frighten the dog or cat shouting "Now that's justice" - please.
