Joke 1:

A lawyer dies and goes to Heaven. “There must be some mistake,” the lawyer argues. “I’m too young to die. I’m only 55.” “Fifty-five?” says Saint Peter. “No, according to our calculations, you’re 82.” “How’d you get that?” the lawyer asks.

St. Peter replies: “We added up your time sheets.”

“Your cholesterol is 130.”

Joke 5:

A man phones a lawyer and asks, “How much would you charge for just answering three simple questions?”.

The lawyer replies, “A thousand dollars”.

“A thousand dollars!” exclaims the man. “That’s very expensive, isn’t it?”

“It certainly is,” says the lawyer. “Now, what’s your third question?”
