Make 'Em Work

I ran into a couple of situations last week that wouldn't have been interesting at all but for the reactions of the prosecutors I was dealing with.  As I always do, I filed several motions in two felony cases I currently have pending.  This wasn't necessarily the big hurdle.  The big deal, apparently, was the fact that I had scheduled the motions for pretrial hearings.

In getting a date for the pretrial hearing, I was met with frustration, exasperation and outright rudeness.  I will not apologize or feel bad for doing my job.  I am a criminal defense lawyer.  To do the job properly and effectively requires time, effort, and work.  I work.  I will not be outworked nor out-prepared if at all possible.
