What is a non-attorney spokesman anyway?

I liked it better when I was younger, and advertising for lawyers was unheard of.  You could find a block ad in the yellow pages, or something  similar in professional journals, but television ads?  No way.

Now, not only the yellow pages, but the back cover of the phone book is generally one of those full page photo ads of the “One call-that’s all” variety.  Stack them deep, and settle cheap.

And the tv ads seem to come one after another, trolling for clients to sue their doctors, pharmaceutical companies, stock broker, whatever and whomever.  Always ending with the same extremely fine print disclaimers and the voiceover ,”I am a non-attorney spokesman.”  Interestingly enough, I’ve yet to hear anyone offering to sue another lawyer for malpractice, have you?

/cue lawyer joke.

Nope.  Just another internet hoax.  You may notice that the article at the link is about 6 years old.

Heh™.  I gotta get out more.

  1. Some lawyers don’t need no stinkin’ spokesperson.

    • Heh. I’d need to have Saul on speed dial, but nobody outside of the family believes that I would do anything at all bad.
