No free advice

A doctor and an attorney were attending a formal party where they started up a casual conversation.  As they talked, people kept approaching the doctor describing their aches and pains and asking the doctor for advice.  The interruptions irritated the doctor but he kept his wits and smiled while he provided free advice.  Finally, the doctor turned to the attorney and asked, “What do you do to stop people from asking you for free legal advice when you are not in the office?”

The attorney smiled.  “I give it to them, ” replied the doctor, “and then I send them a bill in the mail.”

The doctor had never thought about that.  He was a little surprised but agreed to give it a try.

The next day, a patient approached the doctor on the street and asked what she could do to help stop a severe itch she was having.  The doctor smiled and explained a few medications she could try.

The next day, the doctor prepared a bill for the women.  When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.

Yes I Know Him

A small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand in a trial – a grandmotherly, elderly woman.  He approached her and asked, “Mrs. Jones, do you know me?”

She responded, “Why, yes, I do know you Mr. Williams.  I’ve known you since you were a young boy.   And frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me.   You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs.   You think you’re a rising big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher.  Yes, I know you.”

The lawyer was stunned.  Not knowing what else to do he pointed across the room and asked, “Mrs. Williams, do you know the defense attorney?”

She again replied, “Why, yes I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too.   I used to baby sit him for his parents.  And he, too, has been a real disappointment to me.   He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem.   The man can’t build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the shoddiest in the entire state.   Yes, I know him.”

At this point, the judge rapped the courtroom to silence and called both counselors to the bench.   In a very quiet voice, he said with menace, “If either of you asks her if she knows me, you’ll be jailed for contempt!”

Witness, Please Answer the Question

One day at a trial, an eminent psychologist was called to testify.  A severe no- nonsense professional, she sat down in the witness chair unaware that it’s rear legs were set precariously on the back of the raised platform.

“Will you state your name?” asked the district attorney.

Tilting back in her chair, she opened her mouth to answer, but instead catapulted head-over-heels backward and landed in a stack of exhibits and recording equipment. Everyone watched in stunned silence as she extricated herself, rearranged her disheveled dress and hair, and was reseated on the witness stand.  The glare she directed at onlookers dared anyone to so much as smirk.

“Well, doctor,” continued the district attorney without changing expression, “we could start with an easier question.”

Touch Lawyer Math

An engineer, a physicist, and a lawyer were being interviewed for a position as chief executive officer of a large corporation. The engineer was interviewed first, and was asked a long list of questions, ending with “How much is two plus two?” The engineer excused himself, and made a series of measurements and calculations before returning to the board room and announcing, “Four.”

The physicist was next interviewed, and was asked the same questions. Again, the last question was, “How much is two plus two?” Before answering the last question, he excused himself, made for the library, and did a great deal of research. After a consultation with the United States Bureau of Standards and many calculations, he also announced, “Four.”

The lawyer was interviewed last, and again the final question was, “How much is two plus two?” The lawyer drew all the shades in the room, looked outside to see if anyone was there, checked the telephone for listening devices, and then whispered, “How much do you want it to be?”

Your Dad’s a What?

A grade school teacher was asking students what their parents did for a living. “Tim, you be first,” she said. “What does your mother do all day?”

Tim stood up and proudly said, “She’s a doctor.”

“That’s wonderful. How about you, Amie?”

Amie shyly stood up, scuffed her feet and said, “My father is a mailman.”

“Thank you, Amie,” said the teacher. “What about your father, Billy?”

Billy proudly stood up and announced, “My daddy murders people, steals from them, and drinks.”

The teacher was aghast and promptly changed the subject to geography. Later that day she went to Billy’s house and rang the bell. Billy’s father answered the door. The teacher explained what his son had said and asked if there might be some logical explanation.

Billy’s father said, “I’m actually an attorney. But how can I explain a thing like that to a seven-year-old?”

Are you Talking to Me?

At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness. “Isn’t it true,” he bellowed, “that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?”

The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn’t heard the question.

“Isn’t it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?” the lawyer repeated.

The witness still did not respond.

Finally, the judge leaned over and said, “Sir, please answer the question.”

“Oh,” the startled witness said, “I thought he was talking to you.”
