Business is business

I attended a friend's wedding at the weekend. Naturally, like any good divorce lawyer I handed the bride and groom a copy of my business card.


  1. You utter swine. You have doomed their relationship. Without your business card the thought of divorce wouldn't even have entered their heads.

    Now it is all they will think of anytime there is a dispute. The inevitable will happen. their childrens destroyed psyche lies on your conscience.

    You utter rotter.

  2. Yeah, but think about the fee income!

  3. I think that says everything I need to know about you.

  4. Hmm... I hope we don't have a sense of humour failure here.

  5. I am a Family Solicitor too and about 18 months ago was Best Man at my brother's wedding. The only thing I could have possibly started my speech with was with reference to the fact that this was a fantastic remarkable day as I tended not to see many marriages from this end... My brother and his wife are still talking to me and to each other.

  6. You're a braver man than I.

    If ever I need to keep my husband in check I remind him that I am a divorce lawyer. And he in turn reminds me that we don't have sufficient assets to be worth the argument...

    Thankfully none of my circle of friends has yet divorced and I'm keeping my head down - because I know they'll be heading my way for a freebie when they do...Advising friends about relationship breakdown is the LAST thing I want to do (paid or otherwise)!

  7. Agreed. Advising friends is a sure-fire way to ruin a good friendship.
