I agree 100% that lawyers are majority of the problem.
This is why the elders here always recommend a litigator. Someone that loves being in front of the judge, loves to win, loves to argue the law, doesn't care if he steps on OC toes, doesn't care if he annoys the judge and coaches you on what to say and do in any given scenario.
The only downside is litigators cost a lot more money than your typical lawyer/mediator but it's money you would end up spending anyways in the long run.
