Defusing negative facts or law

“Sorry” seems to be the hardest word

Sometimes we lawyers have trouble saying we’re sorry. We should try to overcome that inhibition. Saying you’re sorry can be cathartic. For instance, here’s a letter1 by a lawyer saying he’s sorry about having to reschedule a deposition.  I’m sure he felt much better after writing it.

1The recipient’s name has been whited out because we don’t have his side of this story. And 1,000 apologies to the many fine lawyers I know in Dallas.

Postscript: The recipient of the letter offers his counterpoint.
