Four Wheel Drive Trucks Rock....Firing Somebody

Can you tell we got dumped on today! Yah, I drove my truck to work...didn't even have to use 4wd.

Now that firing business. Frequently those of us who attend alpha1 retreats or ed days hear other doctors & nurses say "Don't treat your doctor like God! Sometimes you need to fire them and find a different one." I have learned sometimes the same holds true for attorneys. I am waiting to see if I should have held my cards closer to my chest. I emailed another estate planning attorney in the same law firm of my previous one. I also realise it IS the holidays.
Hopefully, I don't have to go searching for yet a different attorney. It seems not many specialize in estate planning, business & real estate law. Doesn't help I'm like that odd color crayon in the 128 crayon box. Croonieism bugs me!
