I learn something new from every case—from personal injuries to how to install a concrete tile roof.

What is the craziest thing you have seen/experienced as a lawyer?
As a new attorney my supervising partner asked me to assist him with the deposition of a pro per plaintiff. The plaintiff had what appeared to be a container of soup on the conference room table. Right before the deposition started, he knocked over the container and the contents went all over the table and chairs. Immediately there was the most awful smell. It turns out his container was full of human waste. Police were called, he was arrested, and my law firm had to buy new conference room furniture. I will never forget it!
