I guess you can see that I was hungry when I replied to that comment.
Sometimes people say: “I understand that you charge so much. After all, you had to study for 4 or 5 years to become a lawyer.” That’s nonsense. Theologians and experts in ancient Chinese literature of Mongolia study even longer, yet you wouldn’t pay them your life’s savings, would you? You pay a lot because you are in a messed-up situation that only one person, the hot-shot lawyer, can solve. And by doing that, he will save you not only more money than you invest, but also your life, your freedom and your sanity.
And realistically, you only need a lawyer once or twice in your life. So you may as well pay a bit more than for your monthly haircut. Regard it as a treat, like a vacation. Just a more intellectually rewarding treat, at least if you find a lawyer who is also a philosopher.
