Lawyers in Real Life — Spring 2019

posted on in Firm News

I’ve been married to a lawyer (Lamar III) coming up on 10 years. I love my in-laws, the Armstrongs. They’re great people and have welcomed me as one of their own. But MAN, the dinner table can be brutally boring! I call it “law talk”.

As a 2nd grade teacher (shout out to my Four Oaks fam!), my eyes gloss over real quick when they start talking shop. Which happens – well – a lot. Law talk is basically a foreign language to me. Maybe one day I will become fluent. As for now, I think I’ll stick with my native language and continue to unapologetically use words like “potty”, “bottom”, and “inside voices” during adult conversation.
