MadSkillz: Where does the word 'attorney' come from? In Canada, a lawyer is a barrister or solicitor.


It's a cross between Atilla [the Hun] and ornery.

lennavan: How well do you think that argument would go for someone posting ads on craigslist? "$100/hr for my time, we can make phone calls, do legal research, appear in court together, or have sex."

I want you all to know, I only charge for actual work.  I don't bill for times I'm in the shower thinking about a case.  Just when I'm actually producing a product...like an orgasm.

Anyone who'd pay 50 dollars for this service, would certainly pay 75.

plausdeny: slayer199: Seems pretty cut and dried. He billed her for sex.

Lawyers bill for time, whether you're having them make a phone call, do legal research, appear in court, etc.

The sex was an incidental activity in the course of the time associated with the case.


What he should have done is apply a credit to his bill. Would that have made her the prostitute?

Sentient: Yeah, I had a lawyer once call me for some basic info he already had (biz ID number, spelling of a client name). He then called back 15 min. later, saying he'd forgotten to write them down & need them again.

Both calls, each billed at his half-hour minimum, showed up on the month's bill.

Lawyers are parasites.
