Best Lawyer Story

    The best lawyer story of all time . . . bar none.

    The United Way realized that it had never received a donation from
 the city's most successful lawyer. So aUnited Way volunteer paid the 
lawyer a visit in his lavish office.  
The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, 'Our research shows that
even though your annual income is over two million dollars, you don't 
give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give something back to 
your community through the United Way ?'  

The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, 'First, did your research  also
show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and 
she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?'  

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, 'Uh . . . no,
I didn't know  that.'   

   'Secondly,' says the lawyer, 'did it show that my brother, a 
disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is
unable  to support his wife and six children?'  

  The stricken United Way rep begins to stammer an apology,
but is cut  off again.  

'Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sister's
husband  died in a dreadful car accident, leaving her
penniless with a mortgage  and three children,
one of whom is disabled and another that has  learning
disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?'   

The humiliatedUnited Way rep, completely beaten, says,
'I'm so  sorry, I had no idea.' 

   And the lawyer says, 'So . . . if I didn't give any 

money to them,  what makes you think I'd give any to you?
