Poor “union member representative.” She wanted me to pay her to refer union members to me.
Me (after she says she’s looking for an attorney to represent union members): “I’m a criminal defense attorney.”
Her: “We’re looking for a criminal defense attorney who will represent union members.”
Me: “And I don’t pay for leads.”
Her: “You don’t want union member clients?”
Me: “I love all kinds of clients, but I don’t pay for them. I don’t need to.”
I love it when they don’t try to argue with you about that. (Many do.)
For the record — so I don’t offend any union members out there — I’m not against unions; I support them. But, as I said, I don’t pay to get clients.
And I’m not even sure those folks are actually from the union themselves.
