Calm Strength

Being quietly calm but ready to say what needed saying along with being quick-witted and good-humored but persistent paid off big today.  It is a better way to persuade than being over bearing and mean-spirited but right.  I have finally put into action all those Kung Fu episodes I watched as a child; an homage if you will  to Cain and his ‘master’.  || ||

1. The practice of law requires at the very least the following:
a. training in the construction of paradigms and syllogisms
b. extensive reading of old english common law
c. a working knowledge of the United States Constitution and the State Constitution
d. devotion to preparation, preparation, preparation of each and every case.
e. Devoted use of the Mathmatical formula: “Non Sunt Multiplicanda Entia Praeter Necessitatem ” [entities are not to be multiplied beyond necessity] popularly stated: “all things being equal, the simplest answer is always the correct answer”
f. Complete research of all the intertwined statutes and caselaw interpreting them for every issue in the case you are handling at the moment.
