Finally a lawyer who is funny outside of the courtroom.

When Marcel Strigberger tells non lawyers that he is a lawyer and a humourist, the most common response is, “That’s an oxymoron”.

Lawyers are often the butts of crude jokes. There is even a joke about lawyer jokes. It goes, “Lawyers don’t think lawyer jokes are funny and laymen don’t think they’re jokes”

The law and the practice of law are rife with humour. And we all can use humour to break the tensions, to create rapport and simply to maintain our sanity.

Marcel has been effectively using humour in his litigation practice for over 35 years. And he has also published legions of humourous articles in legal and non legal publications. Marcel is also an accomplished speaker. He has addressed lawyers, judges and non legal people, in an entertaining manner, on how to use humour to enhance one’s professional and personal life.

His talks will be of great interest to anyone interested in issues such as civility, burn out or technological overwhelm, or to anyone who simply does not wish to be stuffy and rigid.

Legalhumour.com is a unique site also containing original humourous articles penned by Marcel about lawyers, judges and cases. Marcel also amuses the folks with frequent blogs about news items with a legal twist.

Hello Again. It’s Us, the Robbers

    In my hometown, Montreal, 4 robbers hit the jackpot the other day.  They robbed a bar at gunpoint, hopped into their truck and got lost in the area. They ended up returning to the front of the bar they just robbed whereupon the surprised police arrested them. At the time of arrest the hoods were still wearing their masks.

    I'd say the driver of the truck must have gotten an earful from the other three:
        "Hey Jean Claude, do you need a GPS to drive away from the bar we just robbed? Which part of 'far' don't you understand?"

    However I think they should easily get bail. After all, what are the chances they'll be able to successfully abscond?  Then again, they may get lost en route to the courthouse.

    I think when the driver gets out of jail one day, he could readily land a job, driving a truck for the post office.


    I practice family law and civil litigation and mediation.  Please visit www.striglaw.com . I wonder whether the 3 robber passengers have a case for negligence against the driver .
