Whatdyacall 240 Lawyers Locked In the Basement??? A Good Start!!!

Spent Saturday (9/10) morning at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Building with 240 lawyers at the DC bar.  The first sunny day all week & I’m in the basement, excuse me, “the concourse level.”

What a crowd. What a crowd. It was rough I tell ya.-

This one lawyer had a new client come in to see him. “Can you tell me how much you charge?” said the client.

“Of course,” the lawyer replied, “I charge $200 to answer three questions!”

“Well that’s a bit steep, isn’t it?”

“Yes it is, and what’s your third question?”

I tell ya – it was rough!
