What's the difference between a dead skunk
on the road
and a dead lawyer on the road?
There are skid marks in front of the skunk.
After drafting a will
for an elderly client, the lawyer announced a fee of $100.
The client gave the lawyer a $100 bill.
After the client left, the lawyer saw that the client had in fact paid $200, as two of the client's $100 bills had stuck together.
Looking at the $100 overpayment, an ethical question arose in the lawyer's mind: "Do I tell my partner?"
