Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often the real loser - in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of becoming a good man. There will always be enough business. Never stir up litigation. A worse man can scarcely be found than one who does this... A moral tone ought to be infused into the profession which should drive such men out of it.

Private conversations should remain private

I have learned a hard lesson of life. Much like learning that a stove top is hot and will burn you by touching it, I have learned that private conversations should remain private by posting a private conversation publicly. I foolishly posted word-for-word a private message conversation that I had with an expert in a certain field. This was not wise nor honest.

It’s too soon for law school scholarship negotiations

I have a few scholarship offers and was wondering when I should start the negotiation process. After doing a great deal of reading and research, I feel pretty confident that it is wise for me to wait as long as possible to start scholarship negotiations. If I had more money, I would put deposits down for each school that I am seriously considering and then begin negotiations.
