Here's one for the WTF column: Tonight, you can get both pizza and legal advice at the same place. And the pizza costs more.
That's right, Humpy's Pizza (Wilton Manors' fourth favorite double-entendre establishment behind Bottoms & Tops, the Cubby Hole, and Dairy Queen) is serving free legal advice with its trademark pies. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the parlor will host a panel of expert attorneys who will answer any legal question tossed their way. The only catch is there is no catch: You don't even have to buy a slice of pizza. Just come in and ask away.
So let's say you're a high-profile Southern Baptist minister who's been embroiled in a sex scandal with a male prostitute AND you're really craving a piece of pepperoni pizza. Well, you've come to the right place.
The presiding attorney on hand will be Loring Spolter,
an employment law and DUI specialist who will hand-pick a panel of
rotating experts in various fields of law. Each week, there may be
corporate lawyers, real estate experts, or criminal attorneys. The
parlor plans on hosting guest speakers too.
Of course, the
obvious question is why would anyone want to receive legal advice in a
pizza parlor? The answer, according to Humpy's, is why not? Manager
Stephen told us, "We're trying to partner with local attorneys to
provide a way for cross
promotion from a business sense. Also people do have questions
about legal issues, and often they don't want to sign up for a whole
consultation with an
attorney. So we thought this might be an interesting avenue for a more
indeed. But it does raise a question of courtroom etiquette: If a
lawyer gives you free legal advice, should you buy him a slice?
