I recently had a chance to work on a case that made me very happy to be in this profession. Last week I presented a motion regarding a foreclosure on a property which the owner purportedly had relinquished and was no longer interested in.
To my surprise, the owner attended the motion after receiving my notice of presentment, and expressed his desire to keep his property. The foreclosure was only a few days away at this point, but I was able to work with my client to get an agreement together that met the client’s needs and desires and eliminated the need to foreclose.
The part that made me happy to be in this business was the property owner’s attitude after the agreement was reached. I was truly touched because the property owner expressed such heartfelt gratitude, and he actually thanked me when I was merely working to get the best deal for my client.
This post probably doesn’t come off as something an attorney should typically say, but it was very nice to know that this job can make you feel good when both sides of a dispute can walk away satisfied.
