Welcome to the Practice of Law, Mr. Fuentes! (BTW, the Courts Are All Closed).
Here's a small light of positivity to brighten the dark government shutdown sea we all seem to be swimming in, a young lawyer being sworn in to our noble profession.
Too bad you only get a week in federal court!
Still, the doors are wide open at 73 West Flagler.
To get ready for motion calendar, I suggest barging to the front of the deli counter at Publix, pompously state that the deli lady already knows your order, the minute she starts cutting your roast beef start packing up your papers, if the person you cut off begins to protest then loudly talk over her and -- in an exaggerated motion -- hand the deli lady a blank piece of paper and assert that the document provides clear and controlling authority for your actions, and if she continues to protest demand an evidentiary hearing by the gourmet olive cart and threaten to take an immediate writ to the yogurt aisle.
(I've seen this work a hundred times!)
Have a great weekend!
