David Giacalone

Please, Evan, no thanks are necessary. Indeed, I don't even plan to send a bill (especially since it would cancel my retired status).

I have every confidence you can defend yourself without co-counsel. The one-hand-behind-the-back gambit is, however, a little too showoffish, even for a p/i lawyer. (I can see the one-handed ligigator tv ads already, as soon as your heavy-hitter campaign ends).


David: One-armed lawyer? Not a bad idea. It would allow me to compete with St. Louis's Brown & Brown, which advertises on billboards and TV. Ed Brown wears an eye patch. It's worked well for his firm. I recently polled a group of first graders; more than half knew about "the lawyer with the eye patch."

My requests of the Senior Partner that she start wearing an eye patch have all been rejected.


Bills should be sent to which address?


Jim: I am presently setting up a committee to formulate a response to your question about the bill. Speaking on behalf of all of my anticipated committee members, I can say that I am confident that we will be able to respond to your request very soon. In the meantime, please be assured that we are working very hard to come up with a prompt solution to your problem. We hope to be in touch with you again very soon.
