Alarm bells ring on lawyers' conduct

It's so sad to read of attorney-at-law Jennifer Messado's arrest for impropriety.

Though I reserve comment on the specific allegations against Ms Messado, one wonders whom we can trust when attorneys betray our confidence. Following the number of arrests of lawyers in recent years, the Messado charge leaves a bitter taste in the mouths of most of us.

The arms of the law are catching up with many rogue lawyers and it should be a wake-up call to others that they are not above the law.
