So if you hit the jackpot and get a lawyer to set up your trust and or help you claim your jackpot....Do they get the 33% of your winnings like they do if they represented you in a civil case or what?? Cause if it is the 33% the lawyer who helps that 590 million winner(s) will be richer than the winner(s)....So does anybody know what percentage the lawyer gets or what??

    Are you serious? Setting up a trust etc. is an hourly fee service (not a percentage) and most will provide you a cost estimate. The 33% is for contingency type fees (if you prevail) for litigation, etc.

      yes it's true. The lawyer taking 33% of the jackpot is the standard rate for this type of job but you are in luck. If you let me represent you, I will cut you a once in a life time special deal and I will only charge you 32%.

      Is it a deal? LOL

I will make you a billionaire in no time! I have a track record of 50% annualized returns on all my investments*

                  My lawyer will do it for 23% and he promises not to hump your leg when he starts thinking about the money.

                  Or 20% with leg-humping included.

                        There is no pro Bono work from Lawyers when it involves the lottery- those guys are not called Lawyers for nothing. ..

                          What is meth?  Is that how your becoming a billionaire?

                          I used to love cracker jacks.  The prize got a little cheap I think.

                          I love corn in a box.

                            I wish I had known one could get law degrees in a box of cracker jacks. I have to stop doing things the hard way! One time I got a little joke book (about an inch high) as my prize....my fave...what is green and sings??  Elvis Parsley!
