Have Fun


I wrote yesterday about What About Clients‘s Rule 1, “Represent only clients you like,” and my doubt that it can apply to a criminal practice.

Also yesterday, WAC posted his Rule 12 — a rule with which I wholeheartedly agree: Have fun.

It’s supposed to be fun. American law is extremely varied, elastic and constantly presenting new practice areas. It has something for everyone. I am convinced of this. Please keep the faith and keep looking until you find it. Put another way, don’t quit before the miracle occurs. It’s there, and it’s all inside you, in front of you. Simple–but still hard. It’s a privilege and joy to do what lawyers do when they do it right.

(I wrote here about how “fun” was a major factor in my choice of practice.)

  1. Thanks, Mark. We’re honored. And you are spot-on in previous post re: “liking clients” for criminal defendants, appointments (I used to do CJA work in DC and PA), and the unpopular/despised.
