mark pattersonI am just fresh from training with West. It appears the litigation support software I have is not as effective as it could be due to the age of our Word program.

    Well I know the young fellow I hired and is now surfing for real while in law school looks a lot better than me, but the author actually looks more like a man who has practiced law nearly 30 years. See the icon that should show up with this comment.

    Meanwhile it has been a quiet week in Everett, my hometown. So, I think I will catch a bus for downtown and see what is up at the Estates and Trust seminar. I like working for the dead. Dead men send no e mail.
