Hoping To Bend The Law

Me: “Good morning. [Law Firm].”

Caller: “I was wondering if [Lawyer] could give me some advice on getting alimony after my divorce.”

Me: “I’m sorry. [Lawyer] does not offer free legal advice. Her hourly rate is [rate], and I can schedule you a meeting for [set price].”

Caller: “I’m not really looking to pay. Can you give me advice?”

Me: “I am not a lawyer, thus am not qualified to give legal advice. I would hate to steer you wrong.”

Caller: “Well, what if I told you what I wanted to know, you asked [Lawyer], took notes, and then you called me back?”

Me: “No, ma’am. I will not do that.”

Caller: “This is very poor customer service!” *hangs up*
