    Good on the lawyer who wrote the Ms. JD article.
    I tried a case this spring during which a lawyer on the side of the case introduced his associate to the jury by saying, “I know she looks twelve, but I promise she’s a real lawyer.” Under the circumstances, she couldn’t speak up, but I fumed on her behalf.
