I’ve been a lawyer for over 20 years. I love my work, but I love my clients even more. I make time to talk to them, to listen to them, and I try to make it a point to see them as often as I can. Over the years, I’ve learned to respect and appreciate the human side of my profession.
In the late 80’s, I heard stories about people being called up from their offices to find out if they were actually there for the same reasons they were when they were employed. It seems that the majority of people in our house didn’t know what to do, so they didn’t want to do that. But it was interesting to hear the stories of the people who had been called up and discovered they were really there.
I have a lot of respect for the legal profession. I grew up in a big household, and my mom and I spent a lot of time on the phone. We were all involved in the same family business, and we were all part of the law school. It was a part of my life for many years.
It’s interesting to read about the law school, not a part of the life of our family. I don’t know why we were not called up, but I did. It was hard for me to put my head in the sand.
I know a lot of people who grew up in a big household, and they are all involved with the same legal profession. That is, at least the ones I know. I grew up in a small town in Illinois, and I never had any involvement with the criminal justice system.
A person with an active law practice has a vested interest in seeing justice done. This includes cases and cases, as well as the people who represent them. It’s a real hard thing to have to do your job and put the client above yourself. It’s a big part of the job and usually a huge amount of stress. You need to have a balance in life and be able to give as much as you can.
For example, if you are a lawyer and I talk to you, you need to respond to that conversation. If you are a lawyer and I ask for a favor, you need to ask. If you are a lawyer and I tell you something to do, you need to do it. In my opinion, your best friend should be someone who can’t be trusted to make a judgment call that isn’t based on personal feelings.
This is a lot of time-pressure. For example, if a person is a “loser”, they will be more likely to try to take the lead in an investigation or a law office situation. This is the reason why you don’t see someone on the street in an office unless you are a “loser”.
The first time you do it, you either have a very good friend, or you don’t. If you have a good friend, then you have a great friend, and it will be easier to get to know them from other friends, unless you’re a loser.
Sometimes people go too far. A good friend is someone who you can trust, and who is going to help you out when you need help. But then you can trust your friend to help you out when you need it, and your friend will have a great partner to help you out if you break up.
