A lawyer’s dog, runs around town without a leash and steals a leg of ham from a butcher shop.
The butcher goes to the lawyer’s office and asks, “If a dog steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog’s owner?”
The lawyer answers, “Absolutely.”
“Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from my shop today.”
The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50.
The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.
Three days later, the butcher receives a bill from the lawyer for $100 as a fee for consultation.
