Lawyers are communicators and wordsmiths, right? But can they be succinct, pithy? Here’s your challenge of the day. Describe your practice, in six words*. Every sentence in this post complies. None over the six word limit.
We did it, but can you? Some examples, in no particular order:
- Please, please see it my way. – Appellate Practice
- Is too. Is not. Is too. – Civil Litigation
- Lived. Died. Four Kids. All Theirs. – Probate
