Damned If You Sue, Damned If You Don't

The children of James Brown are suing over the validity of their godfather, err... father's will. They're claiming that Brown's lawyers pressured him into setting up trusts from which the lawyers would profit to pay for his grand children's education and for charitable causes, presumably, instead of giving the money to his kids.

Criticizing lawyers is normally a good thing, but don't accuse them of greed, then turn around and ask for money. The last thing they should have done was provide evidence that Brown knew his kids were greedy and decided to do the responsible thing.
