Every day, people come to me with stories. Usually there are questions or problems in need of answers associated with those stories. It is rewarding to be able to provide those answers or solutions, but a large part of what keeps it from being boring or oppressive is the stories. 

Reading judicial precedents is more stories. We study them for their value in describing the legal principles, but each case is a story. It starts with a description of the facts, then a description of the applicable law, and finally it describes how the law applies to those facts. For each decision, those facts were one of the most important events in the lives of the two sides, and you are reading those stories.

I can still recall the very first cases in law school, over 40 years ago, Hadley v. Baxendale and another about sailors in a liferaft who kill and eat one of their shipmates.

I have written 3 novels which include stories I have heard over the years, embelished and exagerated for dramatic effect. Two of them are available on Amazon.

Most lawyers don't make a lot of money, and automation is taking its toll, but I still love my job.
