Alright, Alright, everybody calm down, I'm back.
I was busy this past week. Jury trial. I lost.
Actually, let's be more accurate here. My client lost.
Then came the time when my supervisor had to tell me, "Lawyers win trials, clients get convicted." And, in this case at least, that was true. I fought that case as hard as it could be fought. And, in the end, neither the facts nor the law were on my client's side. It was a loser of a case, but my client had no choice but to go to trial because there was no offer on the table.
I had an excellent clinic professor when I was in law school who would always say, "It is what it is." And, at that time, I remember thinking, "What a dumb phrase."
But now, now that I am an actual trial lawyer (loves it!), I know exactly what it means to say, "It is what it is."
But, that's over now (thank goodness!), and I'm way behind on my blog reading and writing. I'm going to go see what my favorite bloggers were up to this week, and I'll get around to writing more here soon.
