    Pretty funny stuff. We‘ve got yet another legal shield salesperson trying to sell cheapo legal services by spamming a site catering to lawyers, we‘ve got a comedy routine about the court system, and a bar association (in California - surprise!) giving away all the referrals to silicon valley for which members thought they might be receiving. But the disappointment is because they are so sad they can‘t help those unable to afford. Such altruism.

    Wow pro bono business law! Thanks Steve!

  • Bill Anderson

    There is a company out there that has been around for over 40 years helping people with there legal needs at an affordable price with lawyers that care about their clients. That company is LegalShield. For more information check out their website legalshield.com or check out mine wanderson49.info

  • Steve Martin

    Haha. And what do YOU call the legion of lawyers who give millions of dollars to access to justice every year and take on thousands of pro bono cases?

  • Henny Youngman

    What do you call a lawyer who says s/he‘s looking out for the little guy? A liar.
