It's awesome. I get to live in DC, work for the government, have decent hours, incredibly nice people, a decent office, and I've already sent out things to real people across the country who've replied with their thanks and how much help I was. Feels good to be doing something meaningful and not writing bullshit essays for no reason.

Got lucky on computer/logins and got my Westlaw/Lexis credentials in a day, but my Metro card that was supposed to come preloaded still isn't. :|

Shit, clients tend to be stoked if you can reverse due to IAC

All that "you're in danger" shit is way overblown

There are many reasons not to want to be a criminal defense atty or to prefer prosecution but this is not one of them

Some good reasons: clients tend to be uneducated, difficult to work with, have no idea what you can reasonably accomplish, and have no $

Yeah fair enough, but there is still an element of danger. Don't dismiss the fact that criminals are crazy.

Obviously the attorney was lucky.

Edit: Quoting was horrible.

Definitely more dangerous than tax or whatnot, no argument there
