I spent the entire summer of 2016 doing a dep in St. Joe's MI. Made a single plaintiff $20 million. Made American Platinum going through ORD. Those shiny luggage tags sure were sweet tho.

Re: Objectively intelligent.

On another note, I made a vegetarian version of the world famous Oki Dog and was really surprised that it tasted quite decent. I didn't take pictures of mine but will in the future. Here's the original.

A dep. Single plaintiff. 4 days a week over like 3 weeks (June into July) with intermittent travel and prep that stretched it out. Dep went from 9 to 4. Traveling from St. Joe's is a bitch -- 4 hours to Ohare.

No dep time limits? I know it's my state, but I'm ignorant on state court rules.

Re: Objectively intelligent.

I so remember when Sebby assured us that we didn't need to worry about Barr pulling this kind of sh*t. Ah, those were the days.

I once had a deal that kept me flying in and out of Evansville, Indiana.

Nothing like 4 days in Basel in a windowless room 12 hours a day.

It's possible to be miserable almost anywhere when you're a lawyer.

It is pretty much EXACTLY what Sebastian said could never ever happen (while derisively dismissing the idiots who suggested that it might, in fact, happen).

I have found the NHL and MLB.tv apps to be saving graces. That and you know, some other sites even if you only use them for 25 seconds or so.

I値l admit that it seemed like a good idea. Someone who could rally the players as 登ne of them while enjoying fan support as a local hero. But it痴 hard to argue with Chelsea痴 current results.

And you get it for free with partial season tickets, even if you can't use them.

You buy Mets season tickets? And people at your firm still come to you for advice?

Honestly, i think the most depressing jobs in Detroit right now must be Pistons or Tigers ticket sales agents.
