Lawyers are people too

Ah…people.  They are that form of life on this planet that are capable of so much.  It could be beautiful, artistic, empathetic, self sacrificing and every good quality that you can think of…but, people have and equally darker side.  It could be evil, devious, narcissistic, ugly and every form of evil that you can think of as well.

There are far more subtle and specifically human characteristics that are part of this human condition.  Laziness and carelessness come to mind.  I know.  I am a human and I have found myself in this condition.  When I am guilty of this, it means that I am not living up to my potential…and this is sad.  I do want to improve in this area.  I have every intention to get right to it.

The sad thing is that when I found the need for an attorney years ago, I thought that meant I bought perfection.  I never did consider the title of my blog post today.  It would appear that the time that has lapsed during the time of our relationship had a real effect.  Life, it appears, moved on while my legal problems stagnated.  In typical human life fashion the delay led to several more related legal issues…and they all have to do with money.

From my perspective, this can easily be attributed to laziness.  I know that he’s not working on my case as it should have been disposed of years ago.  The problem is that I neglected to remember that I am part of that team.  I am not able to understand legalese so when the friendly process server showed up at my door, I took the piles of paper and delivered them to my attorney and was confident that it would be handled.  Over the past few days, I have found that not to be the case.

Apparently, an overzealous attorney on the opposite side of the table took an action that “should not have been taken” and now my entire family is financially paralyzed.  Additionally, my daughter has had her entire life savings taken from her in an indiscriminate money grab.  Since I have my own attorney, I can’t talk to her, and by her I mean this faceless individual representing “the other side”.   I have to believe what my attorney is telling me and as of late that is very difficult.

So, from this date on, I am on the same level.  I know that their weaknesses are my weaknesses and their flaws are my flaws.  Out of love and dedication to my family, I am emboldened.  It is time to pick up the baton and direct this ensemble and create a harmonious resolution.  I hope you’re ready.  Rehearsals begin right now.
