What Is It With Lawyers?

"What Is It With Lawyers?” is the 7th in my Tom's Autumn Rambles series of original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal

Tom's Autumn Rambles with Joseph T.Riach


With rapacious lawyers everywhere cashing in on the claims business by encouraging the populace to blame someone, anyone except themselves, for negligence (it used to be called an accident) with regard to even the most minor and ridiculous piece of misfortune, I decided that it was time for me too to get on the gravy train. But what to claim?

I first considered an action against my local baker for selling me bread which turned brown when toasted. Then I thought to make a claim against the toaster manufacturer themselves for selling a product which not only scorched my bread but also electrocuted me whenever I put my hand into it while standing barefoot in a basin of salted water.

But eventually I decided on a simpler route, a claim against my lawyer himself. One for mental anguish and loss of windfall profit caused by his failure to initiate any spurious claim for damages on my behalf while knowingly in possession of the capability to do so! So I telephoned my lawyers.

Lister, Lister and Lister,” answered the superior male voice, “How may I be of assistance?”

I'd like to speak to Mr.Lister,” I said.

That won't be possible sir. Mr.Lister is conducting the defense in a case of most serious criminal significance at the High Court and will be fully engaged there for several weeks. Is there anything else I can do for you?”

Well in that case, can I speak to Mr.Lister?” slightly non-plussed.

I'm very sorry sir, that won't be possible. Mr.Lister is on annual leave, skiing in the Swiss Alps. He will not return until at least the end of the month, perhaps later. Naturally he cannot be contacted. Will that be all?”

Not quite,” annoyance evident, “Is it possible then to speak to Mr.Lister?!”

“Certainly sir, this is Mr.Lister. How may I help you?”

Aaagghh!” I bit hard into my sleeve and stifled a scream. Then, summoning my composure and with appropriate gravitas, I issued my formal instruction … “Go sue yourself!”

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that I could 'retire' at an early age to the tranquility and calm of South West France. I later moved on to Southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
