Even the most piddling question will cost you a bundle. And that clock sure seems to tick quickly when the minutes are so pricey.
So here's a bit of welcome news: The El Paso County Bar Association sponsors a "Free Call-A-Lawyer Night" on the third Thursday of every month from 7 to 9 p.m. Yes, that's TONIGHT.
Now if that isn't a reason to like lawyers, I don't know what is.
Here are the details:
