Lawyers have always been the laughing stock of many jokes sessions. Almost anyone who compiles jokes has at least one lawyer joke. I myself do not compile any joke nor do I remember most jokes. If I do, they are but a few…and I usually have to rephrase because I don’t remember the exact joke. Poor me. What lawyer joke do I recall? It’s about the skid marks that tried to miss the cat and not the lawyer.
Although lawyers’ reputation in general is somewhat bad because of those who chose to exercise their power over those who do not know the law, we still need them. Not only if you’re famous but more so if you’re nobody and your right has been trampled upon. Are you an immigrant? Will you be an immigrant? Perhaps you should know your rights and be ready to call for immigration attorneys (be ready with several in case the first you called is busy) so you can do so when you need to.
