#22 They can be Pussycats in Court


Q. I have just changed lawyers and, although satisfied with my choice, my wife tells me that the man down the road says my new lawyer is a pussy cat in court.


How can I know if I have made the right choice? Any advice he gives me now will be devalued with this slur standing against him? Will he be ready if I need him? Should I change again?

A. Stop changing lawyers all the time. It doesn’t do any good. Tell your lawyer that the man down the road said that he was a pussy cat in court. If he successfully sues the pants off this man for defamation then you not only have the satisfaction of proving your wife wrong but you also get to see him in action in court. If your wife gossips, the lawyer may sue her too. Serves her right.
