Thank you for introducing the word to me.
Kleptomania is the condition of not being able to resist the urge to collect or hoard things.People with this disorder are compelled to steal things, generally objects of little or no significant value, such as pens, paper clips, tape, traffic cones, signs, and small toys.Kleptomania was first officially recognized in the US as a mental disorder in the 1960s in the case of the state of California v. Douglas Jones.
Kleptomania is distinguished from shoplifting or ordinary theft, as shoplifters and thieves generally steal for monetary value, or associated gains and usually display intent or premeditation, while Kleptomaniacs are not necessarily contemplating the value of the items they steal or even the theft until they are compelled.

I was not trying to communicate that all lawyers are bad.Neither did i tell that the profession is bad nor was i disrespecting dictionary definitions of words.I was actually trying to communicate that advocates should keep the dignity of the profession and senior advocates should pay the juniors decently.
