'Attorney and Client, fortitude and impatience' - Phiz

This classic illustration of the relationship between attorney and client comes from Charles Dickens's classic portrayal of lawyerly fortitude in pursuit of their clients' fortunes, Bleak House.

'Phiz' was the pen name of one Hablot Knight Brown (1815-1882), one of  the best of Dickens's many illustrators.
