Have previously written about how the criminal defence counsel in the law firm deal with the pressures and unpredictability associated with practising that type of law. Plus, when a firm in particularly well-regarded in that domain, demand increases. A lot of collective effort, as represented in this recent email exchange. There is a reason they are all linked by cellphone and cellphone text, all the time:
I don’t understand who is dealing with #6 this afternoon? I have two. More matters in #8 at 2:00 and I’m supposed to meet a client around 2:30.
I’m going back to the courthouse now.
Today is turning into a shitshow. Can anyone help out. I hope to be free by 3:00
I also hope to be free by 3:00
I’ll deal with the overnight. Can someone do the show cause?
There are a lot of overnighters, so I won’t have a chance to do everything. Someone needs to help me, too.
I’m coming over. Just pulling in from Brockville.
