“All lawyers are jerks” (lawyer joke)

"All lawyers are jerks!” is a line in a popular lawyer joke. The joke has been cited in print since at least 1998 and is of unknown authorship.

Found this in the Ulster County Townsman;

A man walks into a bar, slams his hand down and shouts
“All lawyers are jerks!”
A man at the other end of the bar says
“I resent that!”
“Why? Are you a lawyer?”
“No! I’m a jerk!”

Having many legal problems, including a divorce, a man had become thoroughly disgusted with lawyers in general.
One evening in a bar, the conversation got around to his pet peeve and he started “venting.” “All lawyers are jerks,” he loudly proclaimed.
Another man nearby heard this, looked disturbed, and sauntered over to him.
“Look, I heard what you said, and I am highly offended by it.”
“Why is that--are you a lawyer?” he asked.
“No, I’m not; I’m a jerk!”
