Been dealing with a very frazzled, high-strung insurance defense lawyer today.
I know lots of these people, and for the most part, I get along fine with most of them.
The bottom line is they are doing a job.
They have families and bills to pay.
It’s just what they do.
I don’t take it personally.
But every once in a while I come across an angry and bitter insurance defense lawyer.
You know, the kind you wonder if anyone loves them and if there is anybody they care about, either.
Angry with humanity.
Sell their soul to the big insurance money.
As maddening as it can be, I force myself to see where they are coming from.
What an existence.
Out to screw the regular guy.
Fortunately most of the defense lawyers I deal with are just fine.
Many are even good people.
They do their job and I do mine.
First and foremost, comes my client.
I’ve seen too much buddy- buddy among some lawyers that compromises the rights of clients.
I try to be easy to get along with and treat people the way I want to be treated.
I could never represent an insurance company.
