Stop Asking Where I'm From


Written By: humarashid - Jul• 12•13

We just put on an almost three-day trial in Cook County.

We lost.

I am devastated.

But still, I’m reminded of all the reasons why I wanted to be a criminal defense attorney. This is the life I chose, and I don’t regret it for a second.

I’m a little more disillusioned, but not disheartened.

And I think that’s something.

Besides, this isn’t over yet.

Since it would be rather unethical and not in my client’s best interests for me to say anything more than that (which I said just because I know a lot of you think the appeal of this blog lies in the ‘wide-eyed, bushy-tailed new lawyer struggling to hide how galloppingly inept she is’ perspective), I will reserve all posts about my first trial, and everything I learned, did, and felt until after sentencing, when the case is properly concluded and closed.

Also, those of you who think the appeal of the blog lies in that ‘wide-eyed new lawyer’ thing – you’re wrong. There is no appeal to this blog. There is nothing to see here. You all have dismal taste and I despair of you.


So, yeah.
