Honest lawyer

The head of human resources is interviewing a potential candidate for the open position of corporate attorney. “Would you consider yourself an honest lawyer?” the HR person asks in the interview.

“Honest?” the lawyer responds. “Let me tell you how honest I am. My father sold everything he had to put me through law school. After my very first case, I paid him back in full.”

“That’s very impressive,” the HR person admits. “What was the case?”

The attorney fidgets in his seat and says, “He sued me for the money.”
