The Difference Between Real Lawyers


And "criminal" lawyers; and I don't mean lawyers whose primary practice is criminal law.

Having practiced law myself, and worked in a law firm long before that, I made notes on everything I did, especially every conversation I ever had with a client.

The only reason not to keep notes is to keep them from ever being discoverable (attorney client privilege is not an absolute seal).  And the only reason to worry about that, is when you are engaged in a criminal enterprise (one of the few grounds for decisively piercing the attorney-client privilege).

QED.
