A new client had just come in to see a lawyer. "Can you tell me how much you charge?", said the client.
"Of course", the lawyer replied, "I charge $200 to answer three questions!"
"Well that's a bit steep, isn't it?"
"Yes it is", said the lawyer, "now what's your final question?"


true.

Solon Isonomia: Contribution Corsair: ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Maybe we could be like other countries and not have everybody need a lawyer for so may parts of life?

That would require legalese to go away. As long as leases and contracts are used in many parts of life we can't get rid of them. It is either that or teach people how to properly read legalese or require more common language use in those.

Up until I was practicing law at age 29, I didn't need a lawyer or a legal education to do anything. Hell, my law degree was practically a hinderence when I bought my house since I overthought the shiat out of the documents.


At least you weren't hung up on spelling.

Interesting. I'll forward this article to all my friends working as baristas, or temps, or some other shiat job, trying to pay down their law school debt because absolutely nobody will hire them as a freakin lawyer. All they need to do is move to rural South Dakota, then they'll be raking in the cash!

Coming this Fall: Michael J. Fox is "Counselor Hollywood." A smug, highbrow securities litigator gets in a fender-bender in rural Arkansas and is sentenced to spend two weeks providing legal advice to the humble townsfolk, while simultaneously winning the heart of an innocent paralegal. The film climaxes when Fox files a mass tort class action against Dow Chemical on behalf of all the villagers.
