Yes, LOVE YOUR LAWYER DAY is a real thing. It was started by Attorney Nader Anise in 2001. He grew tired of lawyers getting a bad rap and simply asked everyone to stop lawyer bashing and not tell attorney jokes for one day. The hashtag #LoveYourLawyerDay was created and is now used to show appreciation for lawyers one day each year.

Unfortunately, there are many who would rather get a root canal than meet with an attorney. Perhaps more than any other group of professionals, lawyers are vilified on TV and in the media. They are portrayed as money-hungry, egotistical, know-it-alls who will take advantage of you so they can buy another luxury vehicle. The truth is that the vast majority of attorneys are really good people who chose their profession to help and serve people … not to get rich. They simply want to use their knowledge and experience to help you navigate through the complicated legal system when necessary. 

At FMF Financial Services, we LOVE the lawyers that assist us and faithfully serve our donors. They are solid Christians who willingly offer their expertise for Kingdom purposes. Most of the attorneys we work with have been ministry partners with us for years. They offer discounted rates for estate planning documents to our clients to make them available to all. They are easy to talk to and even have a sense of humor!

As a legal assistant and wife of an attorney, I love my lawyer every day. I invite you to try it for just one.
