The Hero Lawyer

Did you hear about the lawyer on vacation whose sailboat capsized in
dangerous, shark-infested waters? He surprised his traveling
companions by volunteering to swim to the far-off shore for help.

As he swam, his companions were startled by the appearance of two
dorsal fins — great white sharks, heading straight toward the lawyer.
To their surprise, the sharks allowed the lawyer to take hold of their
fins, and escorted him safely to shore.

When the lawyer returned with help, his companions asked him how he
had managed such an incredible feat. The lawyer answered,
“Professional courtesy.”
