Location, Location, Location

In preparation for a trial today, I met with a witness on Wednesday.  The trial is an embezzlement trial that has been adjourned seven times.  That's a story for a different day though.

I usually meet with witnesses in my office.  One of the main witnesses is a CPA who does the accounting for the employer who had the money stolen.  Understanding it's tax season and as a courtesy, I met with him at his office.

There was a hitch though.  His usual office was involved in a fire recently so he had moved.  The only short term space he could find while his office was repaired was in a funeral home.

Odd enough.  As I pull into the funeral home parking lot, I'm surprised to see that the building is split in half.  Half is the funeral home.  Half is a prominent personal injury attorney. 

Doesn't the attorney know he's only perpetuating stereotypes?  Maybe clients have hired him out of this arrangement.  As a client, I'd turn around when I got in the parking lot.  You'd have to be careful not to walk in the wrong door. 

If the trial goes, check back for progress and stories next week.

  1. Hah hah hah . . . the only thing more fitting than that would have been if the PI attorney's office was next to an ER. Heh heh heh.

    (And ah yes, adjournments . . . they are never-ending)
