I want to tell you about going out on a good note as I left Omega House today. I had a case where I struck an impossibly good deal for my client with the prosecutor, after my Omega House colleagues told me that the prosecutor has a tough-guy complex and it's impossible to deal with him. They've tried many times to deal with him, no dice.
There's no real way to describe this case both adequately and in a way that won't bore anyone who isn't a lawyer. If I don't tell you the story, I can't explain adequately how my style is different and more effective than that of my Omega House colleagues.
So instead, I offer you two playground scenes.
Unfortunately, I didn't see Dean Wormer and Neidermeyer to tell them about it. I had to settle for a note. Prefacing my gloat about the good deal was:
I enjoyed that.
I hope they enjoy it too. Since I was working in the name of Omega House today, they could try to build on the little bit of goodwill I acheived with the prosecutor.
I have no real confidence in that.
I like Dean Wormer on a personal level. He can be a real nice, fun guy. But when he goes into lawyer mode, he turns into an asshole. He'd do much better with a style that taps into his personal charisma.
So, there's a sense in which I'll miss Omega House. But mostly, I just feel more free.
And I love big endings.
