Somtimes we attorneys over-analyze things. Duh. Take a look, for example at my early posts on the “Power of Profession”. There is some stuff there worth thinking about, but the bottom line is simply to do the right things for the right reasons.

I closed a transaction this week with a seasoned attorney with whom I had worked before. His name has always conjured in my mind sentiments of professionalism and “practical wisdom.” After our closing he sent me this email:

John, I really appreciate skilled and diligent people who take pride in their work. It has been a pleasure to work with you.

That’s what you call professional affirmation. Good day.
