Ain't to proud to beg

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.
