I was talking to a lawyer friend a while ago and he mentioned his girlfriend at the time (now wife) was supportive of his legal career, but (friend) was not allowed to defend child- sex offenders. Not “those people.”

I’ve had this conversation with a few clients regarding their cases this year, and the issue does seem to come up now and then. So for the definitive blog post on the subject: Trials are not about scoring points.
For this week’s episode I’m honored to be joined by Evelyn. Evelyn is relatively young in her work but she’s already made an impact in the community with sharing, coloring, and using the potty. I don’t rank the guests on my program but I was particularly impressed with the depth of this interviewee’s knowledge of judicial elections and what we were having for breakfast. This turned out to be one of my favorite interviews. As always, thanks for listening.

This week’s episode is about jury duty. I’m joined by Brianna and Dan, who recently had jury duty. Brianna was a juror on a serious manslaughter case and Dan was a juror in Seattle Municipal Court, and it’s interesting to hear the similarities and differences of their experience. It’s a long episode but we had a great discussion.
Plus a very special surprise guest WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN BED makes a quick visit.
This week is part two of my interview with Justice McCloud. We had a great talk about bad lawyering, the work of the Washington Supreme Court behind the scenes, and lots more. Again huge thanks to Justice McCloud for opening her chambers up to chat with me. Enjoy!

We had a great discussion about her road to the highest court in the land, the logistics of hearing cases, judicial elections, and lots more. Enjoy this part, and come back next week for part 2!
