Bush lawyer

There are at least three incidents distinguishing a bush lawyer from a practitioner:

1. A bush lawyer never achieves agreement about the law or the facts, that is, a bush lawyer is always wrong;

2. A bush lawyer is never to be found to render assistance;

3. A bush lawyer cannot be insured.

And wild companions waltzed among the grass as tall as grain.
