In the midst of Kyle’s death, I of course had a very tight schedule, including an out-of-state deposition of my client who I was supposed to deliver by car. Because the funeral was the same day as the deposition and, as these things go, it took forever to schedule the deposition and the first instance, I asked my practice assistant to fill in and take the client to the dep. My office assistant filled in for Jenny while she was on her fourteen hour cross state trek. Thank you to my staff for going above and beyond the call of duty in order to allow me to attend my friends funeral. Thank you to my co-counsel for covering the deps through what proved to be one very turbulent night.
