In Defense of Lawyers

Last week,  I accurately related the lack of sympathy expressed from colleagues when I attributed an unproductive week partially to a loss of a family member and a funeral to attend (none of the lawyers said "sorry for your loss"), coming right before Rosh Hashanah commenced (I didn't get one "happy new year" either).

However, when I advised a colleague yesterday that my digital-deficient status did not allow me to generate work, he asked if there was "any assistance" he could render.  And when another was advised that I couldn't read the attachments to his e-mail due to my techno-trouble, he responded with a "been there and totally understand" pat on the back.  A third even offered to "drop off a copy" on his way to court this morning.

In this super-small September sampling of attorneys, here's my take:  we may not be big on sympathies for sadness or expressing religious felicitations. But talk with us about an office-related woe, and our humanity finally surfaces.
