It may seem that way on the surface, but to evaluate whether Carr has 
a case against his lawyers, one would have to actually read the 
contract and know a lot about the circumstances that led to the 
signing.  I would expect that Carr's lawyers explained the contract's 
terms to him in great detail. A large firm handling that large a 
transaction very likely gave him their explanation in writing.  It 
was Carr's decision to sign the contract, and he would only have a 
case against his lawyers if they failed to explain something to him 
properly, and he signed based on that failure.

As for getting a lawyer to take the case, if it's a good case, 
someone will take it.
