Is your client the president by any chance?


Why not? Last I checked the guy who popularized it got elected to@the highest office - your client is a winner!


I see that 3 is the number to beat. Challenge accepted. It will be a fun next steering committee

When you are a client lead, they just let you do it.

I’m an associate attorney at a smallish personal injury firm. Total firm has 12 attorneys, and my office has 2 attorneys, including myself. My office is currently handling roughly 145 cases between the two of us. I’m just wondering if this is a normal caseload for the field. We have roughly 10 trials set for next year. Some are in back to back weeks. Thoughts?
