Best Lawyer story of the year, Decade and probably the Century !!!

Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars,

then insured them against, among other things, fire.

Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these

great cigars and without yet having made even his first

premium payment on the policy the lawyer filed a claim

against the insurance company.

In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost "in a

series of small fires."

The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious

reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal


The lawyer sued.. and WON!


Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance

company that the claim was frivolous.

The judge stated, nevertheless, that the lawyer held a

policy from the company, which it had warranted that the

cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would

insure them against fire, without defining what is

considered to be unacceptable "fire", and was obligated to pay the claim!

Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the

insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to

the lawyer for his loss of the cigars lost in the "fires".


After the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company

had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!

With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous

case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of

intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced

to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.

This is a true story and was the First Placewinner in the

recent Criminal Lawyers Award Contest!

Have you heard about the "great double tragedy"

The first tragedy is a bus filled with lawyers leaving the road and crashing into a river, everyone aboard was killed.

The second tragedy was, there were three empty seats on the bus!

A man sat down at a bar, looked into his shirt pocket and ordered a double scotch.

A few minutes later, the man again peeked into his pocket and ordered another double. This routine was followed for some time, until after looking into his pocket, the man told the bartender he'd had enough.

The bartender said, "I've got to ask you. What's with the pocket business?"

"Oh," said the man, "I have my lawyer's picture in here, and when he starts to look honest, I know I've had enough."

The lawyers perspective...

A lawyer is driving through the countryside in his 7 series BMW. He sees a man, woman and three small children in a field on all fours eating grass.

The lawyer pulls onto the verge and alights from the car. He calls to the man "Why are you eating grass?"

The man replies:-

"Recently I was a successful business man. I relied on the advice of my accountant and his stock broker and trusted them with my life savings. I lost everything. Now my family and I are reduced to living in this field and eating grass."

"Well friend" cried the lawyer "Why don't you come to my house?"

The man and his family pile into the Beemer, admiring the soft leather upholstery and climate control.

The man is so overcome that he says (choking back tears) "I don't know how to thank you!"

The lawyer responds "No need to thank me, the grass at my house is two feet tall."

  • 3 months later...

Two Tigers walking through the jungle in single file, the rear one walks up close to the first one, pokes out his tongue and licks the first ones butt. The leader jumps up and cries what the f#@k are you doing. The second one says "sorry, I ate a lawyer for breakfast and I'm still trying to get the taste out of my mouth"
