I’m there to represent my client and work toward the best possible outcome for him/her. My legal-services agency exclusively serves clients who are low income and have a physical disability we’re in court because they’re at risk of losing the roof over their head, critical public benefits, or custody of their child. I can’t stand up to a judge or opposing attorney when they make comments like that because my clients are the ones who will have to deal with the consequences. I can’t compromise the outcome by risking that the judge will take out his embarrassment, anger, etc. on my client and punish me for speaking up by punishing my client in his decision.

I didn’t think it was funny at all but I didn’t know what else to do. He was a popular, senior guard.

An employer that makes an offer and rescinds it before you’ve made a decision is likely to cut corners, cheat, and generally treat its employees poorly. Health and Dental Insurance: Does the employer offer health insurance ? It can also demonstrate your commitment to doing what it takes to stay ahead of the competition for yourself and for the organization that employs you. Employer: We’re getting 4 percent across the board this year. At that point, the ball is in your court. Don’t sound as though you are just shopping for the best salary. he has a good point
