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 mypetlawyer.com, for $34.99, but if you want to buy a firm-ful of them, Gershwin will make alternative fee arrangements.
