The Year I Lost My Innocence – Again

I will remember 2018 as the year we celebrated my mentor’s 80th birthday, and I was able to share publicly the love and appreciation I have for him.

I will remember 2018 as the year I sponsored two incredible young people to be admitted to the legal profession.

I will remember 2018 as the year I met an elderly client who sounded like Gomer Pyle and who was proud of the fact that he had only kissed one woman in his life, the woman he married and had recently nursed through a long final illness. And when I told the young lawyers in my office that the client sounded like Gomer Pyle, they told me they didn’t know who Gomer Pyle was, and upon further inquiry, they didn’t know who Don Knox was either.

I will remember 2018 as the year a client tried to explain to me that in losing her life partner, she had the inexplicable sense that she had lost 80% of what was her life, and yet was left with 80%.
