This is an interesting piece for those who have used lawyers or want to become a lawyer.

The biggest pet peeve I have on infographics is not having a good title. Unfortunately, this title is boring and really does not explain at all what the infographic is about. I do like the color scheme and images that are used. They give the infographic a professional look which I think is important when presenting the results of a survey.
