I am alive...

All's been quiet on the Western NY front this past week...on the blog, anyway. Work has been hectic. I accepted a case from a retired attorney...only to discover at a hearing that the retired attorney made a grave procedural error 5 years ago that precludes the client's claim. The judge had the client leave the hearing room and gave me his condolences...and adjourned the hearing so I could talk to the client. Not a fun couple of conversations. The attorney is/was an excellent lawyer and a good, honorable person, and it's more than likely a clerical/paralegal mistake that the attorney is now going to take the fall for. The client is catastrophically injured physically and now least for the time being. Yikes. It can happen to anyone - which is a scary reality. Much to ponder this weekend.
