Lawyers on Trial

This chapter begins by presenting cases showing that solicitation is widespread and open. Lawyers learn it from mentors and peers, as well as the cappers themselves (who often use ethnic identity to attract minority clients). Many cappers initiate and dominate the scheme, doing everything except litigate. Lawyers seek to disguise cappers as independent contractors and “investigators”, in order to preserve deniability. The arrangement is highly profitable to both sides. The chapter presents an unusually inventive method for connecting automobile injury victims with lawyers and doctors.
