Series: CROQUIS PARISIENS par DAUMIER

Published in Le Charivari

Original text: Je vais bien arranger votre client!... - Je trainerai le vôtre dans la boue!... (Ayez donc des procès, - note d'un Philosophe).

Here Daumier satires what he perceives as the nastiness of lawyers when representing clients involved in competing lawsuits. Each lawyer threatens the other, pledging their respective clients will be badly damaged in upcoming court proceedings.

Included in the Honoré Daumier III: Law, Medicine, and Social Satire exhibition, 2018.
