When You Know You've Had An Interesting Day...
3/3/04, 6:00pm

Here's a day in the life of a personal injury attorney.

I call a defense attorney to reschedule one of my client's depositions.

"No problem," he says.

"By the way..."

"Yes?" I respond.

"Have you met your client?"

"Um... what? Yah, I have... why?"

"Is she any good looking?"

I realize that this is a guy that I can bullshit around with. I like those kind of attorneys. I laugh. "Well, she's a nice lady, I think," I say (I am, of course, thinking he is referencing the fact that this is a tough-to-establish liability case and he wants my assessment of how my client is as a witness).

He continues: "Well, I just ask because she has a long rap sheet that includes numerous counts of prostitution."

Gulp. Still, I can manage to breathe because prostitution doesn't have anything to do with her veracity to tell the truth...

"And, did she tell you about her felony perjury conviction? And, how about the fact that she filed another lawsuit two months before the one you filed for something similar?"

That was the close of my day before I came in here to post it.

So, I am reviewing the 20+ page rap sheet that the defense attorney faxed to me today...

I'm reviewing the prostitution charge... and guess who the Commisioner was at her arraignment?

One Honorable Commissioner "Mr. B."

Thought he'd get a laugh out of that one...

Now that your case has settled and you have decided that this is really a small world..did you take the time to see who the adjuster was on this case?

LOL... you have got to be kidding.

Tell her "thanks."

Their attorney was excellent, I thought, all the way around. He had the leverage, but he was consistently professional... and didn't take all of this personally. A rare animal in this day and age...

I'll tell her. You know I could not say anything so when you orginally posted your message, we got a little chuckle over here.

Small world...

I am sure she has seen worse, but this one goes in my "legal nightmare stories" file.
