In my seven years of working for law firms, I went to one trial and I was in front of a judge three or four other times. In my new job, I argue in front of a judge every day.
My new job does not believe in training or supervision, so I am literally trained by trial and error. This is an actual transcript from yesterday:
Pepper: Your honor, I would like that order to remain in effect.
Judge: Counsellor, can you give me any legal basis whatsoever for that request?
Pepper: No, your honor.
Judge: Well, I'm glad that you know that. Your request is denied.
