I have written very little in this space in the last month or so. My excuse? All my waking time went into a case my firm let me take to trial, sitting first chair — a gargantuan challenge for a first-year lawyer. Jury selection for a two-week trial would have occurred on Monday (the first court day after Thanksgiving), but we settled late yesterday.
The outcome was good for my client, but I have to admit my disappointment at not going to trial. The adrenaline high is gone after 24 hours of hibernation, but I am ready to take on the world again.
