I'm a Winner!

I'm not really going to post about my work on this blog, since there are huge confidentiality implications, and all sorts of bad stuff can happen when you post about work (see, for example: getting dooced). But I'll just post this one quick note:

Today, 3 weeks and 1 day after I started at my firm, I won not just my first court case, but also my second.

They were both really easy, and other than helping my clients follow basic procedures I didn't do anything too significant (I never had to make a single argument in either case), but my sheer presence made a difference. So really, I didn't win them so much as the legal system won them for me. All the same, it's wonderful to know that these two clients and their families are going to sleep easier tonight.

Now don't tell me I've nothing to do

so, what you're saying is that you've never lost a case, right?

now, in your best harvey birdman voice, say "I'll take the case!"

Ha ha ha!
