Big Shot Lawyer


Big Shot Newfie Lawyer.... Joe grew up in St. John's Nfld, then moved away to study law at university.

He decided to come back to St. John's because he felt he could be a big shot at home. He really wanted to impress everyone, so he returned and opened his new law office.

The first day he saw a man coming up the sidewalk. He decided to make a big impression on this new client when they arrived. As the man came to the door, Joe picked up the phone. He motioned the man in, all the while talking. "No, absolutely not. You tell those clowns in Toronto that I won't settle this case for less than one million. Yes, the Appeals Court has agreed to hear that case next week. I'll be handling the primary arguments and the other members of my team will provide support. Okay, tell the Crown Attorney that I'll meet with him next week to discuss the details." The "conversation" went on for almost five minutes. All the while the man sat patiently as Joe rattled instructions.

Finally, Joe put down the phone and turned to the man, "I'm sorry for the delay but as you can see, I'm very busy. What can I do for you?" The man replied, "I'm from Aliant and I came to hook up your phone."
