Yes, it’s a “real” day.
Love Your Lawyer Day is the one day a year that Lawyers can legally and safely be shown gratitude. The day, which has existed for years, but just this year was recognized by the ABA, is a day to celebrate the good things lawyers do.
To help celebrate the day, persons are to abstain from lawyer jokes and if any are uttered a $20.00 donation should be made to a reputable charity of the offender’s choice.
I was going to blog about the MS Supreme Court, months later, acknowledging the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell. I’ll do that next week.
So, thank you, Lawyers. I truly believe most are good and are trying to help. To those Lawyers who are not and do not, it’s not too late to turn.
