LYNNE BRATCHER: KICK-ASS DEAN OF THE KANSAS CITY TRIAL BAR!!!



Some important advice, insight and life lessons for local lawyers in this Kansas City blogger post . . .

Reflections On Being a Lawyer

Here's the story . . .

Last week, I was one of three lawyers who received the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association's "Dean of the Trial Bar" award. The award has been given since 1985 and used to be called the "Litigator Emeritus" award. In order to be eligible, a lawyer has to have practiced at least 30 years or be 60 years old. I meet both of those requirements, 30 1/2 years in practice and I am 61 years old. The other two recipients, Fred Walters and Larry Rouse, are amazing lawyers. I am humbled to be in their company. When I was a young lawyer, I remember the award given to lawyers of whom I was in awe.

We're in awe of Lynne Bratcher all of the time and since a great many lawyers and legal eagles in training read this blog . . . This is an important perspective to start the day and a productive career.

As a young person, I was in awe of the leaders.

Then I slowly learned the degree to which favoritism, double dealing, and politics plays in the morass.

Lynn is a great lawyer, but the system is fixed.

Good job, Tony. Two hundred more free ads like this, and your debt to Lynne is settled.

Must feel good knowing that you have to pimp this old broad every couple of weeks after Louie smacked you around in court.

Wild man, you sound so bitter. Don't be that way, it is not appealing. You'll never be a winner with that attitude.
