Does this lawyer have your attention? Allow me to set the stage. You meet an interesting fellow at a social event. He asks you what you do and what brought you to the event. Intrigued, you then ask him the same, at which point he responds that he is a lawyer. You remember Shakespeare’s admonition, shake hands, and walk away, thinking or hoping that you seldom need that or any other lawyer’s assistance. Was Shakespeare onto something? You bet he was, but perhaps not for the reason you think.
