Legal Counsel

Famous quotes containing the words legal and/or counsel:

    ... whilst you are proclaiming peace and good will to men, Emancipating all Nations, you insist upon retaining absolute power over wives.

    Abigail Adams (1744–1818)

    It is a light thing for whoever keeps his foot outside trouble to advise and counsel him that suffers.
