It always irritates me when lawyers say "maybe." Not because they're wrong, but because they're not doing their job. I used to sit in city council meetings where week after week council members would ask the city attorney whether they could do something and the city attorney always said "maybe." It irritated me not because I thought there was really a clear yes or no answer, but because the city was wasting it's money on this guy. Anyone could have sat in his chair and said, "maybe."
Sometimes, an attorney has to bite the bullet and give advice.
