Honesty is the best policy, especially when you're a financial advisor. But finding honesty in a competitive market is not as easy as it sounds. Here's a hilarious joke about a young lawyer who was looking for an honest lawyer.
A young financial advisor was tired of looking for jobs after graduating from law school. He decided to open a firm and start practicing. The young man was diligent in his work and was shrewd.
His skills brought in a lot of business, and it overwhelmed him very soon. He decided to hire an in-house counsel and started the selection process.
He posted vacancies in various social media outlets and posted flyers outside courtrooms. Applicants started pouring in, so he set a date for the interviews.
The young advisor kept personal integrity above everything else, and he let his first applicant know right off the bat. He began the interview by saying, "I'm sure you can understand."

"In a business like this, our personal integrity must be beyond question. Mr. Peterson, are you an honest lawyer?" he asked the applicant. The applicant hesitated for a while and replied, "Honest?" with a grin.
The applicant leaned in towards the table and started, "Let me tell you something about honest." He narrated how his father had loaned him $15,000 for his education, and he returned every penny of it.
Impressed by his claim, the advisor asked the job prospect to go on with the story. "I paid back every penny the minute I tried my very first case," the applicant said.
After he ended the story, the advisor got ready to stamp Peterson as a viable candidate. As a final question to a done deal, the advisor asked, "What was the case in question?"
The lawyer squirmed in his seat and was reluctant to answer the question. After his interviewer coaxed him, the applicant admitted: "He sued me for the money."
A lawyer and a doctor were having a conversation at a party. Their conversation soon came to an end after other guests bombarded the doctor asking for free medical advice.
After the hoard of guests went away, the doctor turned to the lawyer and asked him how he kept people from seeking legal advice. The lawyer smiled and said, "I give it to them. I send them a bill later."

The doctor decided to try it out himself when he got home. The morning after, the doctor wrote some bills and made his way to his mailbox.
He opened the mailbox and found an envelope addressed to him. He opened it and found a bill from the lawyer.
