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?"
A man went into a lawyer's office, and demanded to see the lawyer. He was escorted into the lawyer's office.
The man needed legal help, but he knew how expensive lawyers could be, so he inquired, "Can you tell me how much you charge?"
"Of course", the lawyer replied, "I charge $500 to answer three questions
"Don't you think that's an awful lot of money
to answer three questions?"
"Yes it is", answered the lawyer, "What's your third question?"
