Lawyers Wit

Lawyers’ Wit

• Q: What does it mean when a lawyer tells his clients he has a sliding fee schedule?
A: It means that after you pay his bill, it’s financially hard to get back on your feet.

• JUDGE: You’ve been convicted ten times of this same crime. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?
DEFENDANT: No, your Honor. I don’t believe one should be ashamed of one’s convictions.
I do not believe in lawyers, in that mode of attacking or defending a man, because you descend to meet the judge on his own ground, and, in cases of the highest importance, it is of no consequence whether a man breaks a human law or not. Let lawyers decide trivial cases.


Henry David Thoreau
