look, assuming you pass the bar you will be working 12-14 hours a day for at least two years. trust me, your suits (good or bad) will be...
Oh, it's not about getting laid. It's about not having to spend money on a woman. That's the reason I mentioned no wife and no GF. But I guess I'll be made fun of no matter what I say from now on. Is it because I want to spend $5k on suits? Is it because I said I'm a lawyer when I'm not? Is it because I said the threads here are too long? Or are you guys just releasing your anger towards me so that you don't have to beat up your wife?
Damn, I lost everything else I wrote after the end quote.
Started something like this:
great, another attorney, just what the world needs.
Then I started talking about Michael Douglas and how you're here today and tomorrow you're gone. ALso said I'm a man of good taste. I know a good thing when I see one. Art, shoes, clothes, women.
I also wrote that if you're willing to spend 5 hours researching to save $100 then you're not...
chaisingred: thx for the advice and time. This board goes way off topic and threads in the 15 page range are not unusual. For someone like me (no time to waste at the moment) I can't afford it. I think I will take it slow and read a little once I'm done with the bar. Still, I feel this place is not the best to learn. Unless you got tons of time to waste. Search function is useless with so much information.
vox: ty for the link. Spent 30 minutes of my precious time to read...
Sorry, English isn't my first language.
AFAIK, I have a Juris Doctor. The license to practice law in any given state is a different thing. A lawyer in California is a lawyer in NY and in Florida, even if he can't practice. Or is the right term esquire? Like I said, English isn't my first language, so sorry.
By the way, the $5k will be for 5 suits, not one. Though I'm not sure how much he will charge.
Hi. I'll try to make this quick.
Recently became a lawyer. Currently studying for the bar, which leaves me little time to do anything else. Honestly, this board is too unorganized and so full of information that it's unpractical for me to start reading through 30 page threads with 50% of the members saying Allen Edmonds suck and the other 50% saying it's the best thing since sliced bread.
Anyway, I'm 6'1" 200lbs, athletic. 30 years old.
I decided I was going to be...
