Swimming with Sharks

Why won't sharks attack lawyers?... Professional courtesy. Yeah yeah yeah. Blah blah blah. After nearly 18 years of practice, you probably can't tell me a lawyer joke I haven't heard. I don't get offended by them but, for the most part, I don't find them laugh out loud funny, either.  
I love the vintage sunbathers diving across this Emily & Finn dress from ModCloth.
I've never really bought in to "lawyer" stereotypes. I deal with other lawyers nearly every day, both as colleagues and adversaries. Of course there are some sharks out there, but that's because some people are just jerks, not because they're lawyers. In general, we are actually a pretty collegial profession.
A simple rope bracelet with a brass anchor clasp is a fun nautical accent. This one is from Kiel James Patrick.
And as shocking as it may be, we don't all wear navy blue suits and sensible black pumps to the office every day either. "...But you don't look like a lawyer!" is a refrain I hear a lot. Guess what? I'm okay with that. Donning the expected "attorney attire" doesn't make my legal counsel any more sound or well informed.
The gold necklace with striped gros grain ribbon was a bargain find from Burlington Coat Factory.
Thankfully, after nearly 18 years of practice, my clients know that, too. In fact, one of the best compliments I've ever received came from a long-time client and senior vice-president of a Fortune 500 company, who told me he appreciates that I always "smile with my clothes" even though I'm so serious about my job. 
The nautical striped wedges are from Zulily.
The comment really resonated with me. I do like to smile with my clothes. But don't let the sundress full of vintage sunbathers fool you, I will swim with the sharks whenever I need to!

  2. Your client’s comment of smiling with your clothes is so apropos for you! Certainly you are the most stylish attorney I have come across. I adore the white straw hat paired with your red straw handbag, thank you for sharing such a fabulous ensemble with hat Attack!

  3. Hahah... That's a funny point of view. But yeah you can relate to some extent. Because you are already surrounded by the sharks in the face of colleagues so you can defend yourself from real one's.

You will suit up, complete with your tank to get the feel of being in your scuba gear. Everything may seem to be heavy and bulky at first, but wait until you get into the water, everything will be amazingly weightless. You will learn how to operate your equipment and how to effectively breathe using compressed air. shark diving

  39. Hello, We are a company that introduces online casino sports toto sites, etc.,
    only safe sites without financial accident
    It's difficult for the general public to find a safe site, so we went out and made a list of safe sites through testing and verification in a specialized exhibition.

    I live in Korea and are looking for Korean sites, but I plan to expand the site globally in the future.

    So I want you to come in and visit the site link
    Safe Playground, Major Playground, Toto Site, Private Toto Site,
    etc. are verified, and everything is available for free. Also,
    if there is a money accident at our recognized site, we will come out and solve it ourselves, so we can trust and enjoy the game.

    The world is dangerous these days with Covid-19. I hope you can overcome the crisis and be healthy.

    Come visit the safety playground verification introduction site !!
    There is no 100% safe place. Even if I use it normally
    There are also many sites that suddenly disappear one day.

    Always monitor to avoid using the site with such anxiety.

    If you see any suspicious signs, we will contact you in advance to help you avoid damage.

    The method of monitoring is that our real-time monitoring staff can use multiple IDs for 15 to 30 days.안전놀이터

    We conduct frequent check-ups and bets to check whether there are any problems.

  49. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
