William Shakespeare's Henry VI is out. Lawyers are in with Democrats in 2004.

"The first thing we do is kill all the lawyers." the Bard wrote in Henry VI.

No way said the Democrats. We like lawyers. The largest law firms across the country increasingly upped their campaign contributions -- from political action committees and individual lawyers -- during the recent presidential election campaign.

As a whole, American Lawyer magazine reports, the Am Law 100 firms gave more than $19 million to Democrats in 2003-2004 and more than $12 million to Republicans. (The Center for Responsive Politics sorted out the Federal Election Commission financial contribution records by law firm, as of Oct. 25.)

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my nursing home abuse lawyer related site. It pretty much covers nursing home abuse lawyer stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.
