Crisis of faith

For those of you who are left peeking in on this blog and who may be wondering about my endeavors over the past month or so: I think I may have lost my faith in the entire judicial system. Lawyers,* judges, juries, the whole shebang. On the bright side, at least I get to act like a normal human being again. You know: sleep, eat, see family, etc.

*It is the height of hypocrisy for a lawyer who has charged a defendant with lying -- yes, accused someone else of lying -- to make misrepresentations to the court. I'm jus' sayin'.

Hugs to you. I know exactly where you're coming from.I think every lawyer goes through this. I know I did.

It helps to talk about it, do some self care, and hug those you love the most.

Sorry to hear that.

But hmmm...you mention anger and lawyer in the same post. Any chances a pregnant post will follow? In the spirit of the blog title and all. : )

Sounds like a few officers of the court need to get clotheslined by a certain Angry Linebacker.

Attack!

In other news, did you see the new X-Files movie? Wasn't planning on writing a review, but I will if you're interested.

That was kind of when I started mentally packing my bags and quitting the lawyer thing. When I realized that the only person in the room who was not lying was me.

It only bothered me really that my own clients would lie to me, to the jury, to themselves. It didn't surprise me when opponents or opposing counsel lied, but it sure pissed me off when my people would lie.

And they would. All the damned time.

Happy for you that it's over, for now.

I'd found some time ago that there's life after losing one's faith in the Administrative Procedures Act. Living well may not be a frequent basis for operatic plots, but it is the best revenge.

The lawyers who really scare me are the ones who pretend to love it all of the time. Good will come of this. It doesn't feel like it now, I'm sure, but it will.

Yeow-ch. But good on you for seeing it and saying something.

Surely others see it too?

You missed one: 'Expert witnesses' who just make crap up with no science at all.
