Opinie: "Zijn er nog advocaten, notarissen en deurwaarders nodig?"
17/08/2018

De juridische wereld ligt niet echt in de bovenste schuif van de publieke opinie, daarin gretig ondersteund door een bepaald deel van de politieke elite. Het klinkt hip om de notarissen te omschrijven als de “duurste copycenters van het land”, de gerechtsdeurwaarders als “luxe postbodes” die slapend rijk worden als hoofdaandeelhouders van de schuldenindustrie en natuurlijk niet te vergeten: de zichzelf verrijkende graaizuchtige  en gewetenloze advocaten.
