Free Foreclosure Lawyer? What’s YOUR favorite lawyer joke?”

Why we need lawyer jokes:

Fighting foreclosure is a legal battle and having no lawyer is like having no gun in a gunfight. The lawyers who were chasing ambulances three years ago now start chase foreclosure victims. But they are all looking for upfront fees and they often delegate your case to clerical people and there is never a real lawyer on your case. They take your money, fill out forms and place calls with about 10% of the diligence or passion you’d be inclined to invest, or they tell you to file bankruptcy. Real legal battles take time and lawyers won’t really work long and hard for free. I think it was Winston Churchill who said something like this: “I wouldn’t be a part of any organization that would have me for a member.” Well a good rule of thumb for any foreclosure victim is similar: “Don’t hire any lawyer that’s chasing you down, looking for an advance, and dying to take your case. A lawyer can’t make money on a foreclosure case. The better they are, the less they need your case.

So with a clear picture of your chances of getting a great lawyer, for free or affordable, take some consolation in sharing some lawyer joke…

Roberto Benigni’s Life is Beautiful (La vita e` bella), somehow manages to make us laugh through hitlers heinous acts. Such acts can either destroy us or make us stronger. The secret to growing stronger is an old martial arts technique of redirection. And nothing redirects more effectively than humor. Shakespeare wove lawyer jokes into his and often mentioned warnings about lawyers like the FDA warning labels on cigarette packages:

Then ’tis like the breath of an unfee’d lawyer,- you gave me nothing for’t. Which kind of sums up your prospects of getting much in terms of an experienced lawyer for a free foreclosure defense… “The first thing we do,” said the character in Shakespeare’s Henry VI, is “kill all the lawyers.”

But my favorite lawyer joke by far is this one that kind of summarizes them all:

What’s wrongs with lawyer jokes?

Lawyers hate them and no one else thinks they’re jokes.

Lot’s more to come!
