Sometimes it takes a personal encounter with a major problem to make us understand how important the court system is for all Americans regardless of who we are or what we do for a living. I have written about the experiences of Dennis Quaid with the pharmaceutical industry concerning his twin babies. It’s now quite apparent that the Quaids have seen the light and want the public to know that the courts must remain open, independent, and strong for the good of all U.S. citizens. Here is what Dennis Quaid had to say about the legal system:
We’ve also learned a lot about the legal system in a very short time and it was very surprising, I must tell you. Like many Americans, I have always believed that a big problem in this country has been frivolous lawsuits. But now I know that the courts are often the only path that families have that are harmed by drug companies’ negligence. And now we face something that can cause grave harm to all Americans.

HARD WORK AND PERSISTENCE
From my early days in Barbour Country, I have always believed in hard work and persistence. Also, it didn’t take me long to learn that these two traits are an absolute necessity in the practice of law. Regardless of what folks might say about my ability, I am fairly certain that nobody who is in the know would dispute my work habits or willingness to stay on course. The following quotation was sent to me and I thought it was worth passing on:
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
