Beat this for an attorney joke


A father walks into a bookstore with his young son. The boy is holding a quarter. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, and goes blue in the face. The father realizes the boy has swallowed the quarter and starts to panic, shouting for help.

A well dressed, attractive and serious looking woman, in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, carefully puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, arises from her seat, and makes her way, unhurried, across the book store.

Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants. She takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever more firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the quarter, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy's testicles, the woman hands the coin to the father and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar without saying a word.
As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, 'I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?'

'No,' the woman replied. 'Divorce attorney'!

If you only knew what divorce attorneys have to go through, you would understand. Clients want the world but often don't want to pay the freight. Meanwhile, you are called upon to be not just an attorney, but someone to listen to their problems whether they involve legal issues or not. They can spend an hour of your time talking about matters irrelevant to their case and then complain when you bill them for the phone call.

The truth is that representing killers is easier than divorce clients.

On a further funny note what is perhaps even worse....sigh.... I get to listen to customers, employees and friends and don't get to charge them a penny....

How about you get a stop/start clock and stop charging when they need your shoulder as most likely they see themselves talking to a trusted friend.

What does the average divorce cost? Does the size of the estate tend to impact total attorney cost?

PS...recall that this post is simply a joke and not how I believe..hmmm..then again... :)
