Being a trial lawyer has a lot of ups and downs. Just the other day, I was in a mediation on a case where we received a very good offer. I was very happy. But while I was wrapping up the mediation, I got an urgent call from my office that a judge had dismissed one of our cases. Talk about a downer, in just a matter of seconds! When I arrived back to the office, I got an order on a different case that ruled in my favor! It was a roller coaster of emotions, all in a matter of hours.
Being a trial lawyer isn’t easy. It’s tough to lose, especially when you believe in your case. But even in the best cases, judges can rule against you. It is all a part of being a trial lawyer. And even though it has a lot of ups and downs, I love it. I wouldn’t want to do anything else!
