I am a lawyer. Like many of you, there are times when my friends who are not lawyers will seek my legal advice. Either they do not want to nor intend to pay me for my expertise, or perhaps they are all just waiting for the invoice that I never send (Note to self: send invoices, wait by mailbox for checks, retire far earlier than intended). However, there are many other times when I feel that, due to current events or misinformation in the media, I feel obligated to set some record straight with those around me. I do not mean to rouse any rabble by doing so, but it can be torturous to remain reticent when I hear people perpetuate falsity when it comes to the law.
