*** Remember When You Didn’t Know It All?
It may be tough to admit, but at one point in your legal career, you weren’t the legal eagle you are today. Or, maybe you’re still working on it. Either way, The Docket wants your agonizing story of a blunder you wish you could take back. Send your “worst legal blooper” tale to Stacy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, tell it in person at (303) 824-5347. We’ll compile the best stories and publish them in an upcoming issue of The Docket.
