Did you say "Modesto Lawyer"?

I'd say the "modest" lawyer, like most modest folk, got a great amount of parental love and simply doesn't need to impress anyone. Let's all thank his or her parents.


As a life-long Texas resident and member of the Texas bar since 1980, I have no personal sightings to report. In fact, I'm not sure I've yet seen a modest Texan. I think we're talking multiple oxymoronic dimensions with this "obviously flawed" theory.

I know a modest lawyer. He's a pure legal researcher. The best goddamned legal researcher I ever saw, though being modest, he'd deny that. I once asked him about an abstention question. He wandered over to ALR Fed., pulled volume 5 (I think), and opened it to the exact page discussing that particular aspect of abstention. Didn't need no stinking index.

He took early retirement. Being modest, he had banked most of his paychecks for years, I think. Today he does pretty much whatever he feels like doing.

The arrogant lawyer takes all the attention and the "modest lawyer" is often overlooked.

Both can succeed/fail in his own way. One is not better than the other, I guess.
