Just got here, sorry. Nobody loves lawyer jokes as much as lawyers. Keep 'em coming.

George, it could easily be Texas.

Ohio, I believe the answer to your question is "a good start."

Q: What's the difference between a lawyer and a prostitute?
A: A prostitute will stop screwing you when you die.

The devil visited a lawyer's office and made him an offer. "I can arrange some things for you, " the devil said. "I'll increase your income five-fold. Your partners will love you; your clients will respect you; you'll have four months of vacation each year and live to be a hundred. All I require in return is that your wife's soul, your children's souls, and their children's souls rot in hell for eternity."

The lawyer thought for a moment. "What's the catch?" he asked.

What do you call the guy who graduates last in his medical school class?????

Tim good stuff!!!

Of course it's your fault Rick... When you split up, you should keep $20.00 a week for yourself & give the rest to her! How can she even think about surviving on 1/2 YOUR salary? That's way too stressful. You should earn more so she can get a raise!

That's one of the big things that stinks about divorce... the kids always get the shaft... :(

Sorry to hear about your luck... give her he!!

Actual story:

In high school my daughter was an active debater. As a senior in high school she announced to me that she would like to became a lawyer.

I sat there very quietly thinking of the tuition and 7 more years.

Anxiously she ask, "Dad, what do you think?"

I calmly responded, "I only wish you would have chosen a more respected profession like prostitute or crack dealer."

Eventually she chose the medical profession.
