Nice photo, Evan. You clean up pretty well. Almost didn't recognize you without your six-pack showing (no, not that kind of six-pack).

Seems to me, you should have given a little more space in this post to your Senior Partner, whose tolerance makes so many of your (ad)ventures possible.

Mike

Seems to me, you should have given a little more space in this post to your Senior Partner.

My wife would kill me if I blogged about her.

Evan

David: You're right. Andrea is highly tolerant and deserves more space. But Mike is right too. Anything I write in which Andrea figures prominently must then be bowdlerized by Andrea. In most cases, she'd rather not show up on this weblog at all. But she's behind the scenes nonetheless: she serves as this site's Senior Editor, reads most posts before they are posted, and knows that all her contributions to my (ad)ventures are appreciated more than I can easily put into words, especially if those words are for public consumption.

Christopher Cross

You should go with the moniker of "Sexy Lawyer"

Judges love that....

David Giacalone

Of course, I meant that you should have grovelled far more at Andrea's feet, and made far more clear your "Junior Partner" status.

CM

Hi Evan! If you're still having readers copyedit your posts, I think I found an error:

the defendants had falsified tests of a fire retardent

I'm pretty sure the correct spelling is retardant.

Mike

Of course, I meant that you should have grovelled far more at Andrea's feet, and made far more clear your "Junior Partner" status.

Aha - that is rather wise. My wife does gush when I say nice things about her.

Anyhow, I really liked this "post," Evan. Looks very professional and it's understated. It's a good picture too: You look rather handsome in it.

Evan

CM: Yes, I'm still paying $20 for typos and $10 for grammatical errors. Although I think I should have spelled the word as you suggested, "retardent" is a synonym for "retardant," so it's not wrong. I checked it before I posted, and checked it again just now. But the way you suggested is the more common spelling.

Andrea

To CM: FYI - the updated copyediting rules prohibit proposed corrections from appearing in the comment section. Use e-mail instead. Signed, the Senior Partner

Evan

CM: Believe me, I'm as surprised as you probably are that Andrea knows anything about the updated copyediting rules. She's right, but don't sweat it. I know your intentions were good. I'll get her calmed down.

I think this guy is the attorney:
