My last court experience both my lawyer and the other lawyer had yuppy scum names that real people don't have. I can't give their names but a similar name would be Oliver Summerstead Worthington. I should say my lawyer was an old hippy from Cal and the other guy a piece of garbage in a $1000 suit...my guy wore a $50 suit.

My lawyers are called "mafia" I've not been to court once. The witness's just seem to disappear.

I was out in a bar the other night, looking shady as usual when an older man approached me. He said, I can tell you work for the mafia. My brother knows some one who does, I can tell.

ha!

Drop the esquire, it just means 'land owner' and is a title lawyers stole to make themselves look cool. My second favorite line from my favorite Eagles song:

I get the feeling ol' Billy was right, let's kill all the lawyers, kill them tonight....

My first favorite line from the same song:

...I'd like to take his inner child and kick its little @ss....

Eagles rock!

Good job Sue's sister Foo doesn't work as a lawyer. although I do hear she makes the most tips at the strip club.

Why the middle initial in her name? I think she should get the H out of there!

I think I have shared this before, but I once worked with an attorney named Sue Me. I thought it was a joke name, but then I met her and it was real.

There is a law firm around here called "Harness, Dickie & Pierce". That name always made me uncomfortable.

I've always prefered the term of Rookum, Fleesum, and Shyster, but I've heard great things about Dewy, Cheatham and Howe.

Al already did the Marx Brothers joke (or was it Chaplin?)

I have a t-shirt from that Stooges episode. It shows the boys by the law office's door, which says, "Dewey, Cheatem and Howe".

I wonder what the 1st official lawyer joke was?

Fielding West has a joke about a lawyer taking viagra and only growing taller.

Not a lawyer name, but we have a funeral home in my neck of the woods with a name that always raises a few eyebrows when folks first see it... Look at the first one listed:

I like th avail myself of the services of Howard, Howard and Fine.

Leave them poor lawyers alone. It's not their fault they were born without a soul and through violence, degradation and abuse from family and school mates developed hearts as black and evil as the very depths of hell. They weren't the ones who snuck gun powder and Drano into their food, just to take away whatever humanity was left. If they feast on the misery and pain of humanity, they are not to be blamed.

I blame the public school system.

Teachers! That's the real problem.

Groucho Marx was an attorney in one of his movies. The character's name was Mr. Loophole.

I bet you feel guilty for teaching lawyers, knowing they were evil incarnate.
