Post: Don't Look at Me! (Humor intended!)

I ain't a-gonna make it!
There's too many papers,
Too little money,
Too many problems for me to solve!
Everybody's dumpin' his problems on me,
Sayin', "Lawyer, solve my problems,
But do it all for free!"
When I talk about a fee,
They say, "Don't look at me!"
P.S.: That's why I liked handling
accident cases on a contingent fee.
The clients didn't care how much you
charged, just how much money they
walked out the front door with,
what they took home, lawyer paid,
all expenses paid. When an offer
to settle was made, I'd tell them
how much money they'd walk out the
door with and that they did not have
to sign the settlements unless they
were happy with that. There is more
to it all than this, but this is
something to think about.
