A person expert in the rules of government that give structure to a society. Often useful and a requirement of modern life. In the US the number of lawyers has proliferated beyond all reasonable need and they often collude to make work for each other (see: Congress). Have a bad reputation due to overly exhorbitant fees and a number of highly publicized cases where a lawyer does not serve his client properly.
My wife fell and broke her arm in the supermarket because they left a trap door open. I guess I'll need a lawyer.
Some lawyer befriended my grandmother and got her to change her will on her death bed cutting off the charities she was going to leave her estate to and leave it to him instead.
