It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.He is right. It only takes one week to prepare a good prepared speech. My child custody trial continues on Jan. 12. I am going to need a good impromptu speech. I'd better start preparing.
A reader recommended a lawyer to me, so I called him. He seemed like a knowledgeable and sensible guy, but as soon as heard that I was in the middle of a trial, he chickened out. He did not even want to tell me what he fees are, because there is no way that he would step into such a fight in progress. He said that if there is some new action in a couple of years, and I want a lawyer to represent me from the start, then he is interested. Otherwise he would never get a firm enough grasp of the case, and would not want to be responsible for what he might have overlooked.
