This day in history from:


Looks like we have to hire another lawyer with the ever-increasing work.

Seems like we're attracting very good applicants these days. We don't know if we offer a competitive salary because I really don't ask other law firms how much they pay their associates.

But I guess their salary would depend on their experience level. Of course, we wouldn't pay an underbar the same salary as a lawyer that passed the bar. And of course, we wouldn't pay a lawyer who just passed the bar the same salary as one with more than year's experience.

I don't know if the kind of experience we offer our associates is conducive to their growth. But we do get the typical cases (collection, bouncing checks, etc.), but once in a while (but becoming frequent), we get big and complex cases. Our corporate and special projects work is beginning to catch up, too because we are getting big, international clients these days. This is the reason we may need to hire.

In any case, I can think of two reasons we are beginning to attract applicants from the good schools. First, we had our first firm outing in Boracay, who knows where we will go next year? Second, we issue MacBooks to our associates.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.

Side Oath

The Lawyer's Oath
I do solemnly swear that
I will maintain allegiance to
the Republic of the Philippines,
I will support its Constitution
and obey the laws as well as
the legal orders of the
duly constituted authorities therein;
I will do no falsehood,
nor consent to the doing of any in court;
I will not wittingly or willingly
promote or sue any groundless,
false or unlawful suit,
nor give aid nor consent to the same;
I will delay no man for money or malice,
and will conduct myself as a lawyer
according to the best of my knowledge
and discretion with all good fidelity
as well to the courts as to my clients;
and I impose upon myself this voluntary obligation
without any mental reservation
or purpose of evasion.
So help me God.
