Example text

It was a huge lift to see Jim and his paralegal, Joan Herman, arrive. Jim had a big, bulging briefcase. Joan came in wheeling a huge, rolling file with all our backup documentation and exhibits. I remember feeling amazed at how much preparation had been done for what was, in the context of Jim’s legal practice with NASD arbitration hearings, a fairly small case, though it meant everything to me. This was a quasi-legal proceeding. It had begun with the filing of a legal document. There were lawyers for each side, rules of admissibility of evidence, direct testimony, cross-examination, and a panel of arbitrators who could be thought of as judges.

It was the absolute height of “Monday morning quarterbacking” for anyone to say, now looking back and knowing what we know, if you had done this, it would have resulted in that—along the lines of a lottery player walking into a bank to apply for a loan and telling the lending officer, “I have assets. ” The gall was stunning, but I could see how it might be effective. The coincidence that he was using information from the same broker-dealer firm through which I had handled my former client’s accounts for most of this relationship was especially troubling to me.

I wanted to go completely beyond the standard of “sufficient” documentation. I wanted to overwhelm. If we were going to go into battle, I wanted every bit of information, every scrap of relevant paper, every bit of electronic documentation, and I wanted it completely organized and accessible. After going through this process to a level at which I was satisfied, I traveled to New York to meet Jim Weller. Meeting My Attorney—And Getting a Passing Grade Somehow, I had expected to meet an older attorney, a veteran of legal wars.
