An Honest Lawyer?

An investment counsellor went out on her own. She was shrewd and diligent, so business kept coming in, and pretty soon she realised she needed an in-house counsel, so 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.”
