What a great question. I have just recently had to hire one. Now I understand those horrible lawyer jokes. Stressful?? Are you kidding? Keeping a class of 30 students on task, interested, testing, grading, etc . is stressful. I have dated lawyers and they have plenty of free time, believe me. They really believe they are worth it. Unbelievable. There are no low cost lawyers and I am currently in a small town. There are tons of lawyers. All the same price. When I was in real estate they called this price-fixing.
