The Union Hustle

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.
