When the most feared mob boss realized that his accountant had been skimming some of the money he was laundering, the boss got mad and tracked down the accountant. Remembering that the accountant didn't speak English, he brought along one of his lawyers that could translate for the accountant.
The boss demanded to know where the money was, through the translator, the man replied that he didn't know what money he was talking about, now pointing a gun at the head of the accountant, the boss again demanded to know where the money, the translator insisted that he would shoot if the money wasn't given up. The accountant then confesses and says that the money in buried behind the shed at his brothers house. Demanding to know what the accountant said, the mob boss cocks the hammer on the gun, the lawyer translator knowing what kind of man the boss is, calmly replies, "He said you don't have the guts to pull that trigger."

Here's free advice from an attorney:
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Sorry to take this a bit OT (away from lawyers) but it relates so good to a true story that my late Father told me.
In WWII my late Father fought his way across Europe (US Army, Infantry) and also served as a cook (he was a good cook, to that I can attest) and translator.
One day he spotted a lone cow in a field and shot it, took it back to their camp and they all ate very well. [They had been eating only the military rations, so ti was a major treat to have real meat.]
The next day or so, a very angry farmer stormed into their HQ and was yelling at their CO. My Father gets called in to translate and the farmer goes berserk, pointing to my Father and yelling about the fact that it was my Father that killed his cow. My Father translates to the CO that the farmer was angry that the Americans had taken over his town, etc. The CO tells my Father to tell the farmer to get out of the HQ and if he is found there again, he will be shot!!
Knowing the mischievous streak that my late Father had, I believe his story!
