Do you have a lawyer on speed dial?

I see so many posts where people say they've called their lawyer. Do that many people actually have personal lawyers to call when something happens?

No but I can get in touch with one in no time if I ever needed to. My hubby knows a guy from work that is a lawyer and he has represented my husband before, to help with a guy that was giving us some problems, so I know if I ever needed one I could call on him.

Yes. My daddy and the rest of the lawyers in his firm. :) We don't constantly need legal advice but it is obviously helpful to have him around (for that and other reasons). I trust his advice on things like POA's, wills, custody, etc. If my dad was not a lawyer I would likely still have the number for one but it's not like I would have an active retainer with them. My life isn't so interesting that I have a need for that.

We're friends with a lawyer. We needed him once and the only payment he asked for was some delicious, home made Mexican food.

No. We don't have a lawyer on retainer. We haven't had a need.

 My parents always had one, he was a little touched I thought.  My husband's brother is a lawyer and an excellent one at that, so I guess technically we have a lawyer on speed dial should we need one.  I've only needed legal advice once in twenty one years though.
