Today, I love my job   Just received an advance of a book I have been working on for over a year   The crispness of the pages and the cover along with the quality of what is on the inside gives me

John Grisham's 'The King of Torts' explains Ron's clients excellently. Anny

I like pi.

Actually, that couldn't be further from the truth. Not only is Grisham a very very poor writer, but he engages in all sorts of hyperbole and exaggeration in unfairly painting a very negative picture of the attorneys who engage in class action lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs. Notice no one ever maligns any other profession for making money?

 

As someone who represents plaintiffs (albeit not class actions) I have learned to get used it. The feeling one gets from helping a horribly injured person or a child who lost a parent helps take the sting out of the namecalling instigated by the insurance industry and corporate america.

Contacted by a hotshot mass-torts plaintiff's firm about being local counsel for all of their Kentucky clients in some massive MDL.  I just finished drafting and filing all the complaints in federal court, and they told me that they are pleased with my work so far and are prepared to offer me 15% of whatever fee is generated from all of the cases.  SWEET!!!!!

I am going to pro hac them in once its referred to the MDL commish, and then I will just be along for the ride.  Should be cool to see the Learjet Lawyers in action.

Did not understand a word of this. but, if you are happy, I am happy

Translation: Ron has been contacted by a bunch of bandits who specialise in driving decent businesses to the wall by launching mass actions against them on behalf of the "little guy". They fund their lives of luxurious ostentation by siphoning off a healthy portion of whatever damages the "little guy" wins. Ron is picking up a nice percentage of this.

 

Now, the Learjet bit is lost on me. I obviously don't spend enough time reading the legal press... :huh:

Wilfrid--If I wrote what I was thinking I could get kicked off my second board in the last thirty days.

Today I finally finished rolling out a huge, codified user experience initiative to all the local markets my client is in worldwide. The rollout has been via 2-hour telephone calls set at time convenient to the people I'm communicating with, rather than a time convenient to me.

 

I am SO looking forward to not being up at 5:30am to chat to Australia on Monday.
