Connecticut lawyer Don Howard isn't only offering legal advice in his Hartford office but hair cuts as well.

Short back and sides... and some legal advice

Main Street in New Britain is home to his new business venture - called Legal Cuts - that specialises in criminal defence and personal injury law with a side of pampering, the New Britian Herald reports.

Hair cut

Mr Howard told reporters that the haircut environment will allow people to feel less intimidated when it comes to opening up about their legal problems.  He was quoted saying: ‘People often talk about their problems in a barbershop.’
Mr Howard’s bright idea stemmed from a California lawyer that offers legal services in a coffee shop so that customers can relax with a cup of Joe. Although Mr Howard is not licensed to cut hair in the state of Connecticut, he can offer legal advice while another barber handles the scissors.
