Lesson for Lawyers: Be gracious

Another excellent installment from Michael Maslanka and a lesson for lawyers that should be learned early in a legal career:

Lesson No. 9: Be gracious. It is the right approach. It generates good karma. “Karma” is Sanskrit for “action” or “deed.” And right action, coupled with right intention, multiplies itself…Sometimes, lawyers do not do these kinds of things, because we think we will look foolish, appear weak or be exploited. But Churchill took the long view of right actions. Attorneys should, too.

Michael Maslanka’s Work Matters blog on employment and labor law issues (as well as the practice of law) was nominated as a Top 100 Blawg by the ABA Journal.
