View Diary: Who won? (54 comments)

  •  My clients pay me (0+ / 0-)

    for my independent judgment and advice. Of course I will zealously advocate for their interests, but what they are really paying me for is to tell them when it makes sense to fight, when to settle,  what claims are and are not worth presenting, and to give my best predictions of the likely outcomes and best options.

    In my experience, if a client chooses to disregard my advice that is of course their privilege, but usually in that case both of us will be better off if they hire a different lawyer.

    Sorry if you're insulted by my analogy. For the record, I would say that I think there are a lot of very smart and knowledgeable people on this site, and I can learn a lot from them. But there are also a lot of people on this site for whom the analogy might fit pretty well.

      In the interest of letting this whole thing blow over, perhaps it is for the best if I just dropped it. As Armando said, it's done. I'll be completely honest and admit that, based on the evidence I have seen, I have no freaking idea whether this was any kind of a win for anyone, or not.

      I guess we'll know more later.

      I just don't think your diary was helpful. True or not, you lowered the tone of the discussion with your analogy, and exhibited contempt for those who disagree with you.
