Not Impressed

There are certain people in this world that you just don't want to imagine them coming in last in their class.

Like, your brain surgeon.

or perhaps, your lawyer.

Since my lawyer gave his lawyer all the paperwork and said "just fix the typos and submit it to the courts" and he did, I received a cc'd letter from my lawyer to his lawyer telling him there were still minor errors that needed to be corrected. Nothing earth shattering, nothing that changes any legalese in the document, just a couple of formatting issues basically.

The thing is, it was already submitted to the court.

And as I reread her letter this morning, I noted that in paragraph two? There is a typo.

Is it possible to have two lawyers that have graduated last in their class at lawyering school on the same case?

I think they both may have aced the "Pissing Contest" class though; oh, and how to bill every last billable minute to your client...

Ask about her E&O (errors and omissions insurance).

clipped from mine as follows
"Errors and Omissions Insurance protects your company from claims if your client holds you responsible for errors, or the failure of your work to perform as promised"

Hey, they're attorneys, not brain surgeons. Therefore, not necessarily the smartest bulbs on the Christmas tree, just the greasiest.
