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.

Postscript: The recipient of the letter offers his counterpoint.
