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.
