I've done all the background work, I just need a lawyer to file the lawsuit. It's a sure thing, and this will get your name in the paper because it shows corruption at the very highest levels.

Wait a second-I thought this only happened to me. Had a guy in my office who-almost verbatim-said the same thing to me.

Yep. I had a guy call years ago who was trying to sue the US Govt for reneging on various bounties it had on top foreign officials of enemy nations. He listed off a number of high profile killings, including some Russian Cold War guys that he had killed. He wanted his bounty money.

I allowed him to entertain me for about 10 minutes, but this guy could have gone on for hours. So, I told him this case was just way too BIG and out of my league. I told him to call Baker & Botts (a really big local firm), lol. I wonder if he did.

This pretty much wins the thread, although I think it’s safe to say that this statement has been heard by every single attorney that’s ever existed, and that’s no exaggeration.

“It’s not about the money”

“There will be no trial, the insurance company will settle.” Says the client.

Yea I had similar injuries before, but that was a long time ago and I was 100% fine at the time of the accident (weeks later obtains records which indicates visit on the morning of the accident).

Ok, not words, but I really hate it when this happens in one of my PI cases:
