Lawyers, Who Needs Them! provides an entertaining and educational look at the law and those who practice it. The hosts explore the application and implication of the law in everyday life. Their discussions cover a wide range of related topics such as education, business, government, medicine, sports and entertainment. No one is safe from the law or Jim and Randal. Their irreverent approach to topics will keep you laughing and interested!

Lawyers, Who Needs Them? is sensitive and lighthearted, combining just the right balance of entertainment and education. The hosts are always considerate to callers and never forget that they are guests in the listeners homes. They bring legal concepts down to earth. However, they are relentless and direct when it comes to those who abuse the law or manipulate it for personal gain. The hosts bring over 60 years of combined business, legal and academic experience to bare on the subject and most importantly to help those that call with questions and seek advice.
