Year 2, week 18: RiskAssessment

I told Claire about TheBoss getting involved with the Geriatrigation last night.  She is not impressed at all.  Thinks he’ll weedle his way out of any guarantee and that it’ll only end in tears. For the moment though, the reality is that I really have very little choice. Since the beginning of the year I’ve […]

Year 2, week 18: he’s back

I’ve been putting off getting back to TheBoss for the last few weeks but today I could do it no longer as he got through to me on the phone in chambers. “So what do you say BabyB. Are we going to work together?” Now I know that it’s a risk getting involved with TheBoss […]

Year 2, week 18: Oh

Now don’t get me wrong. I’ve got nothing against solicitors. Well, not unless you count greed, laziness, incompetence and late paying. But I certainly don’t have any problem with them having an equal right as barristers to appear in court. But today, just when you thought that wigs were finally on their way out, I […]

Year 2, week 17: frightening thought

BusyBody was in chambers today showing off her baby boy who is now two months old. Still no news on which of the two suspects is the father and no indication that she intends to find out either. Despite the fact that she clearly loves her little boy, I don’t think she’s been handling being […]

Year 2, week 16: BadTiming

It couldn’t have been worse timing. Last night I was having a quiet drink with Claire, still recovering from the late night before out with TheVamp. Claire, it has to be said, wasn’t being terribly sympathetic and then just as she was starting to get a little short with me, TheVamp passed by with her […]

Year 2, week 16: RoughNight

"So how’s your nice little friend Claire, BabyB?" It was TheVamp, last night stirring as usual. We were in a bar after having been working on Big Mouth’s case."She’s good. Working hard.""Pretty keen on you, I’d say.""Oh, no. You’ve got the wrong end of the stick with that one. Definitely just friends. Never been anything […]

Year 2, week 16: Practice is for girls

Had the most annoying opponent you could imagine this morning. He was a third six pupil but was about ten years older than me and about as full of it as you could imagine. "Good morning BabyBarista.  Nice to meet you.  If you’re wondering why I’m against you let me explain.  Successful banker and now […]

Year 2, week 16: GravyTrain

Having used legal expenses insurance to get TheMoldies funding for one of their cases, I think that on Friday I stumbled upon a wheeze for getting even more work from it.  It all arose when I overheard Teflon (the guy who got me done for his mobile going off in court) showing off about how […]

Year 2, week 15: HedgeFunds

We had a leaving do for one of the clerks in a bar near chambers last night  and since my mother’s been bugging me for months to meet the people I work with I brought her to it along with Claire.  But poor her.  She didn’t get past the first question as to how he […]

Year 2, week 15: PriceofJustice

Today was the abuse of process hearing for JudgeJewellery.  Having a soft spot for the learned judge and also not wanting to miss out on a good story I was quick to volunteer my services as note-taker in chief.  UpTights was only too happy for the assistance.  By now she’s put together a huge case […]
