The Journey of an Ethical Lawyer
This week, I came back in the office after being on military duties outside the state. Needless to say, I had many things waiting for me when I returned. I had a hearing in the upstate on Monday, then another hearing in Columbia on Tuesday. Both required preparation, while trying to catch up on the office work. On top of that, we had our open house on Wednesday. As a lawyer, life remains busy. In my case, I also have my military commitments to the unit and War College. In Orangeburg, I am president of Rotary this year, and that is just one more thing to balance out. The primary ethical issue for me right now is in keeping time for family. My 17 year old son had two track meets this week. one I was able to attend, and one I was not. Additionally, my daughters are busy with various things participate (including help with homework). Most of all, I am trying to ensure I spend some time honoring Passion week leading up to Easter. As busy as I get, remembering God and the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus must remain at the top priority. Hopefully, things will slow down as the practice settles down. Regardless, I am happy to help our clients, and fulfill God's call on my life to practice law as a Christian.
