What's The Difference Between A Lawyer And A Liar? Anyone?
U.S. President Thomas Jefferson – a lawyer himself – said in 1807 that, "It is the business of a lawyer to question everything, produce nothing, and bill by the hour." Billing, you notice, comes last. And not much has changed with lawyers. Hire lawyers, now and then; for information, not to get/follow their advice. When you hire them to do something, make sure it is not something you want to have it necessarily done.
