My inner Walter was about to surface...
« on: September 08, 2017, 08:25:15 PM »
Dudes, I had a situation where my inner Walter was about to surface over a business deal (i.e., THOSE ARE FUCKING RULES!!), but I let my inner Dude come to the surface and I took er' easy.

A few burgers, a few beers; my troubles are over, dudes.

Well done, sir. I almost matched you today. A client (who is, by the way, entirely without fault in the underlying case) was being a self-defeating, ignorant, and self-important turd. And that's cool but, in this case, his position was also compromising his own defense. I tried explaining reality. No avail. He raised facts that weren't facts and legal positions that weren't legal. I tried redirecting things back towards reality. He insisted on staying in the never-never land he had created. I almost said "well, fuck it, you're clearly the expert since you're the one being sued for malpractice" but I didn't. So that's a small moral victory. But, after he hijacked the conversation three or four more times I said we clearly had differing views on the matter and that I'd relay his concerns to another attorney who could, perhaps, get on the same page with him. So, I basically extricated myself from the situation. Shame, too, because I could have won that sumbitch via dispositive motion in sixty days. But, fuck it, let's go bowling.

Well done, dude; I'll join you on the lanes. Another oat soda, Gary!

You don't go out looking for a job dressed like that, do you - on a weekday?

Now so far we have, what appears to me, to be a series of victimess crimes.  Sounds to me like you did the right thing.  No sense in trying to represent someone who insists on shooting himself in the foot...or cutting off his own toe looking for a million dollars.  Fucking amateurs.
