On the floor below us is another attorney’s office.  They do Family and Criminal.

Today I had a woman walk in and demand to know what happened at her son’s hearing today.

Lady: “Hi, I need to know what happened in my son’s case today”.

Me:  Thinking this was a bankruptcy hearing..“I can’t tell you any details because the attorney is not back yet, but I can give you an update when he gets back. Can you give me the case number under your son’s name?”

Lady: “Oh, I don’t know the case number, but his name is ******”.

Me: Looking up the name in the database…”I don’t see your son listed as a client.  We are a bankruptcy firm.  Are you sure you are in the right office? The office below handles Family and Criminal matters.”

Lady: “ My son’s not a criminal!”

Me: “Okay, so has he filed bankruptcy or is involved in a family dispute?”

Lady “The name is *****.”

Me: “Okay, that name isn’t showing up at all. Are you are in the right office?”

Lady: “MY SON IS NOT A CRIMINAL! Why would I be in the criminal attorney’s office?”

Me: “Okay… can you tell me what the case was about?”

Lady: “Oh, kidnapping and assault.”

Please make it 5:00.

    No, your son’s not a criminal, he’s just misunderstood. Here’s your Valium.

    Of course he is not a criminal. He is just legally challenged.
