What do you call an honest lawyer?

Is that supposed to be a joke?

Is the answer unemployed?

- actually, I know a few honest lawyers, some of them are shooting buddies. You really have to worry about the personal liabiliy ones - and even them, some people do actually deserve to be sued (since we cant shoot them)

This is a test right???


Or a joke.

There is no such thing as an honest lawyer.

My mother's an honest lawyer. Her clients are the dishonest ones. And then she screams at them until they tell the truth.

This might explain why she's the one who gets little business and always gets the crazy clients.

What do you call a bus load of lawyers going over a cliff?




A good start.

I work for a lawyer and I'm around many others all day long.

I can say this without a doubt, lawyers don't know when they're lying. I see this on a daily basis. They lie so much that they forget what the truth even is. For the most part lawyers are all sociopaths.

This gets old. I work in a law firm and I'm beginning law school next year. At my office we represent a lot of scum bags but some times its the scum that can breath the most life into the constitution. True, it's sad that some lawyers are working so hard to fuck us over like the ones suing gun manufacturers and the ambulance chasers. But lawyers are one of the biggest checks on government abuse that we have. Until you work several cases you will never realize just how dishonest the government is and how little the constituton means to most judges, state attornies, and law enforcement agencies.

Sometimes you'll be damn glad to have a talented attorney. Right now I'm working on a self defense case in which a man who was watching his car get stolen was charged by his own vehicle and shot the thief. The state attorney is siding with the scum bag that stole the car and he isn't even getting charged....after all "we can't have people taking the law into their own hands" hinking.gif. Not all of us are lieing, cheating, liberal scumbags

If two lawyers were drowning, and you could only save one. Would you?

b). Take a nap

If youy want to find an honest lawyer, look at a career prosecutor. These are the guys who could be making big $$$ in private practice or as career politicians, but instead they choose to serve the public. I know one who could make millions in private practice but he believes it is his mission in life to send scumbags to prison.

I know lots of them who would be hustling traffic tickets outside the courthouse if they weren't on the public tit, too.

It's a trap! Don't answer! Besides the concept of the honest lawyer is an urban myth!

Let's see, I just "fired" a client because she had completely unrealistic expectations regarding her sexual harassment claim.

I, in good conscious, could not proceed.

Now, I suppose I could have postured the case through some discovery, depositions, and motions, and taken quite a bit of her money, which she had already paid me in a retainer, only to ultimately attempt to settle the case for a paltry sum that likely would have been LESS than the fees up until that point, but that would have violated my personal ethics considering that her case simply didn't warrant it.

She basically begged me to go forward, but the case was simply a dog.

She'll probably find another scumbag to take her case, but not me.

I regularly tell clients when their cases suck, or that they would be better off going to small claims, etc.

My professional reputation is paramount. I've already seen it payoff from referrals and the like. People know that they are dealing with a stright shooter with me and I get more play with that than by being a "fast talker" or a "shark."

I'll be garbage man before I'm dishonest or unethical.

Yea, porbably only because you took some payoff from the other side cause some crony of yours represents the putative defendant. You didn't even help that poor lady and you probably even charged her for your time FOR SHAME!! You just don't want to help...that's it, yea, crooked attorney!
