"I am so humbled by the faith people put in me. I am also overwhelmed by the perspective my clients have despite facing the worst tragedies. I just settled a case today for a man who suffered a leg amputation when a car pulled in front of his motorcycle. Over the time I have been his lawyer, I never heard him complain ONCE about how he felt or how his entire life has been re-written. He was surely in pain, scared, frustrated -- but his attitude was always shockingly positive and upbeat. This client trusted me sight-unseen on the recommendation of a mutual friend. He lives half a country away, and could have picked any of the lawyers knocking on his door. But he chose me. His attitude and spirit prompted me--after our very first conversation--to waive his case expenses AND more than half of my usual attorney fee. So I am thankful to know this client, and I extend boundless appreciation to him and our mutual friend who put us on the other's path."
“ The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.” - Henry The Sixth, Part 2 Act 4, scene 2, 71–78I do not mean that literally, but maybe the world would be a better place if there were not any in the first place. Which brings me to the question: Selfless or narcissist? Every lawyer I have ever met, with one exception out of hundreds were selfish, arrogant, narcissists. Have you had a different experience? I hope so. If you have or have not, let me hear your opinion, about your experience with the legal profession.
