Great advice and great news!
I am thrilled to hear that your meeting went well! If you were representing a client in your position, you would probably have given the same advice as Suzanne–who has a promising career as an attorney if she ever decided to give up architecture!
I’ve spent nearly 30 years as a lobbyist for non-profits advocating on behalf of uninsured, disabled, and poor folks, and I know it would be very tough for me to lobby on my own behalf were I treated as you have been by your partners, Brian.
Good for you for sticking up for yourself!
By the way, are you on prednisone? I found it makes me more emotional than ever in my life. Great idea to let the ativan take your edge off for the meeting!
Your partners may give rise to a whole new generation of lawyer jokes!
