Dirty Fighting with Lawyers
Bob: “You are my lawyer, Jack, and you have to know. Ron is going to fight to get what he wants.”
Jack: “That’s why the secret to success is to find out what Ron wants and to see if you can give it to him.”
Bob: “Isn’t that selling out?”
Jack: “No, I think it’s more like negotiating to get what you both want.”
Bob: “But Ron is a crook; we caught him stealing cash from the business.
I couldn’t prove it so I did not call the police.”
Jack: “Well, how does it help you in a court case then?”
Bob: “Okay, but it tells you what we are up against – someone with no moral code.”
Jack: “It doesn’t matter. When you fight with pigs, you still get dirty, even if you win.”
