I really doubt they're doing it out of the goodness of their hearts. The middle of their wallets is a more likely target. This has fishing expedition written all over it. 1 in 12 odds that an attorney finds a "case" that lands him a nice fee. I wouldn't be surprised if there are more attorneys than people tomorrow night...

Rob, you are possibly correct, but sometimes people dont know where to start at all and having an opportunity to meet with an attorney to get general direction is helpful. I am not an attorney, but I do have an Employee Assistance Program through my employer where I can phone and talk to an attorney for 15-20 minutes of consultation. Its been helpful and Im glad I have it. Drop ins are the next best thing for many people.
