Pro Bono One-Stop Shopping
"We are more than a trade... A profession is not a business. It is distinguished by the requirements of extensive formal training, a code of ethics, a system of discipline, a duty to subordinate financial rewards to social responsibility and an obligation on its members to conduct themselves as members of a learned discipline and honorable occupation." - Hon. Judge Simon Rifkin, Bates v. Arizona
