A Couple Reminders of Why I Do What I Do Where I Do It

As the sole proprietor, my family knows when trial is upon me.  I am home less often, I am irritable, and my head is just not engaged while at home.  Trial is consuming, but awesome, just like running my own firm.   Almost three years ago I set up shop in Hugo, a wonderful town a bit south of Forest Lake, a bit north of White Bear Lake, a bit east of Centerville, and a bit west of Grant.  Why did I do it?  A few recent events remind me why.

Making a downtown Minneapolis law firm file with the court of FullSizeRenderappeals after I beat them at trial.

While at the office around 9 p.m. one night recently a good friend stopped in with a problem.  He saw my lights on, rushed to his office to get some papers, and rushed back to my office, hoping to catch me.  I was nearly finished for the night, but was sure to make time for him.  As we drew near the end of the meeting he gave me a 1 1/2 pound premium steak for my troubles.

A client recently wrote to me about 3 months after I last assisted her.  The client wrote to say Thank You for the advice I had given her three months ago, advice which turned out to be good.

I can call the barber for an appointment and 20 minutes later be in the barber's chair.  I didn't have to check in or out with anyone and I didn't have to have it approved by anyone.

I create jobs and contribute to the local economy.  I won't pretend I'm Target or anything, but I do pay people to work for me, I refer people to Hugo, Forest Lake, and White Bear Lake businesses, and I do donate to local organizations.

This is why I do, what I do, where I do it.
