Lawyers Wit

Lawyers’ Wit

Q: What’s the difference between a law firm and a circus?
A: At a circus, the clowns don’t charge the public by the hour.

• A man who had been caught embezzling millions from his employer went to a lawyer seeking defense. He didn’t want to go to jail. But his lawyer told him, “Don’t worry. You’ll never have to go to jail with all that money.” And the Lawyer was right. When the man was sent to prison, he didn’t have a dime.

As a child, I wanted to be a Lawyer because I thought Lawyers and the Law were wonderful. But they are more wonderful, I think, than I had thought.
