    Client: ”How much do you charge to install Windows on a computer?”

    Me: “$85”

    Client: ”Is it going to be legal?”

    Me: ”Yes.”

    Client: “How much do you charge for a pirated copy?”

    Me: ”$10,000 or 10 years in prison.”

  2. You know you are a law student when studying for anything else (even when it is 40%) makes you feel guilty that you are not devoting every minute to Contracts.

  3. I really wish there were a Microsoft Office - Law Student Edition.

  6. It’s not fraud if i can save taxes!

    clientsfromhell:

    Client: I want you to bill me for $50k, but I’ll only pay you the $1000 you quoted me.

    Me: Why would I do that?!

    Client: Then I can write it off on my taxes as a business expense.

    Me: That’s fraud.

    Client: No, no, then you can say that I paid you $50k, and nobody is the wiser.

    Me: Except then, I’d end up paying a lot of bogus tax on income I didn’t receive.

    Client: What if I threw in an extra $50, under the table? You can buy one of those new “i-droids” you kids like.

  9. "It is an honorable calling that you have chosen. Some of you will soon be defending poor, helpless insurance companies who are constantly being sued by greedy, vicious widows and orphans trying to collect on their policies. Others will work tirelessly to protect frightened, beleaguered oil companies from being attacked by depraved consumer groups."

     - Art Buchwald

    Me: Do you mean a website facebook’s functionality?

    Client: No, just a facebook. I’ve been told having a facebook will help my business.

    Me: So you want me to make you a design for your facebook page?

    Client: No! Not just a page! Make me a whole facebook.

    Me: You can make a facebook account, I’ll assist you with that, and we you can create a page for your business which I will help you design. It’ll appear on Facebook on your customers - 

    Client: WHO SAID I WANT AN ACCOUNT OR A PAGE, I JUST WANT A FACEBOOK LIKE ALL THE OTHER FACEBOOKS OUT THERE.
