I should start my own firm

Attorney 5 requested that I proofread a brief for him.  Attorney 5 actually writes quite well and proof reading his stuff is usually pretty easy.  Today things turned out a little differently:

Me: I finished proof reading your brief.
Attorney 5: Thanks.
Me: Um...weird question.  Are you trying to do something different with the Statement of Facts?  It doesn't read like your usual stuff does and...(insert tactful comments about how this section of the brief appears to have been written in crayon).
Attorney 5: Heh.  It's interesting that you noticed that.
Me: Why?
Attorney 5: I didn't write it.  Attorney 2 did.
Me: know parts of that section sound absolutely ridiculous.
Attorney 5: Yes.
Me: As long as we're on the same page.

Attorney 2 is my boss.

  1. LMAO...I can so relate to this. I once used a portion of a brief that my boss wrote a year prior. It was canned law.. but we always wrote the same thing for a slam dunk motion to dismiss with every case. He read the motion and pointed to the section that he wrote and said, "Do you even know English?!" Fucking dick. I'm a brown girl, so that was a low blow. Even lower cause he fucking wrote it.
