Lawyer Phone

lawyerphone
Lawyer Phone | Place | Public pay phones have all but disappeared from the modern urban landscape due to the proliferation of cell phones, so the ones remaining take on a mythology of their own. Lawyer Phone is located at the entrance of the Main Mini Mart convenience store at Main & E. Cordova across from the Provincial Court, presumably so the accused can call their attorneys.

Usage: “I used Lawyer Phone the other day to call my girlfriend.”
