With the economy tanking (and yes, it is tanking) I’m busier than ever. That is the problem with being a commercial litigator and a business bankruptcy guy. I hate to say it, but in twelve years of practice, I’ve never seen banks call PERFORMING loans. I emphasize performing, meaning that all payments have been made on a timely basis.
What I also didn’t realize is that economic desperation actually causes more litigation. Where folks once would have put up some money to make a problem go away, they have no money to put up and therefore pay the lawyers instead.
To top it all off, I think everyone is just an emotional wreck with everything going on nowadays. My family, people I work with, people at church, you name it.
I don’t think the election is helping much either.
I feel like Al Pacino did in the move “And Justice For All.” Saw this clip tonight as part of an Inn of Court seminar tonight.
It is tough trying to be a finder of the truth that gets so obscured.
