Honest Lawyer

Jokes

An investment counsellor went out on her own.

She was shrewd and diligent, so business kept coming in, and pretty soon she realized she needed an in-house counsel, and she began interviewing young lawyers.

“As I’m sure you can understand,” she started off with one of the first applicants, “in a business like this, our personal integrity must be beyond question.”

She leaned forward. “Mr. Peterson, are you an *honest* lawyer?”

“Honest?” replied the job prospect. “Let me tell you something about honesty. Why, I’m so honest that my father lent me fifteen thousand dollars for my education and I paid back every penny the minute I tried my very first case.”

“Impressive…. And what sort of case was that?”

The lawyer squirmed in his seat and admitted, “He sued me for the money.”
