"From the Horse's Mouth," National Law Journal
On December 24, 2012, Michael H. Trotter, attorney at Taylor English and author of “Declining Prospects: How Extraordinary Competition and Compensation are Changing America’s Major Law Firms,” was quoted in the article “From the Horse’s Mouth” that ran on The National Law Journal’s website. The article reflects on the political and social events of 2012 through the quotes of notable public and private figures. Among the quoted are President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and actor Michael Douglas. Mr. Trotter’s statement is pulled from a New York Times article that ran on April 27, 2012, regarding the current and future state of the legal industry. He is asked whether he would encourage his grandchildren to go to law school, given the state of the profession, to which Mr. Trotter responds that he would not.
