What do you give the lawyer who has everything?

How about a pet? A pet lawyer, even?

Los Angeles entrepreneur Nancy Gershwin came up with the idea for this must-have toy for anyone who loves, hates or is an attorney after realizing that she couldn’t make a move without talking to one of her lawyers.

And after hearing herself, friends and other lawyers sing the praises of their pitbull-like attorneys, a lightbulb went off in Gershwin’s head and My Pet Lawyer was born.

Three years in the making, My Pet Law­yer is a remote-controlled collectible that growls, laughs, sings or lets you record your own audio.

It’s currently available only at the website, for $34.99, but if you want to buy a firm-ful of them, Gershwin will make alternative fee arrangements.
