Remembering you with gratitude
A year or so ago, I was called for jury selection in a Hartford murder case. In Connecticut, the attorneys for both sides can question prospective jurors individually. When it was my turn, the prosecuting attorney, noting my answers to the questionnaire I completed, state that it was unusual for someone to be involved in the number of lawsuits I've participated in (i.e., Florida, an age discrimination suit against Aetna, a real property dispute). She speculated that I must have a negative opinion about lawyers.
"Oh, no," I said. "I've liked all my lawyers." That was absolutely true, but you, Ben, are my favorite. You are a thinker and a strategist who thinks of all the angles. You are very good at analyzing people and relationships. While continually showing restraint in stating what positive outcomes we could expect, you nonetheless kept encouraging me to "stay in the game," which was so important. And you were always well prepared. I grew to know that I could trust you to do an excellent job on my behalf, and that you certainly did.
Many thanks for your good work, and thanks also to your staff for their part!
