It doesn’t matter.
It doesn’t matter that you have a baffling slider, or are an up-and-coming and affable attorney, or are admired by new staff and clients for your honest approach to consulting.
If you don’t pitch to contact, or are a threat to the credibility of the preeminent successor of the family law firm, or are leaving to pursue entrepreneurship and a better life, you’ll be shown the door and used as an example.
Sure, when you don’t toe the line, you might get kicked to the ground.
But, ask Francisco Liriano, my future brother-in-law, or me “what’s better?”.
Toeing the line or flourishing as yourself.
