Honest Lawyer

A lawyer was interviewing for a corporate legal position. The personnel director looks up from the lawyer’s resume and says, “Your credentials are pretty impressive. But I’ve seen all kinds of credentials. Tell me something—are you an honest attorney?”

“Honest?” the lawyer replies. “Let me tell you what kind of attorney I am. My father lent me twenty thousand dollars for law school. I paid him back in full, every cent, after my very first case.”

The personnel director nods approvingly. “That is impressive. What was the case?”

“He sued me for the money.”
