Churchill once said that politicians become statesmen when they start thinking about future generations, rather than the upcoming elections. I say when lawyers, who are skilled in a practice area, dedicate themselves by contributing to the greater good of the profession, they cease to be just lawyers and become good counselors. Mr. Friedman is such a counselor.
