Good News/Bad News

Here is a humorous post from the Law Blog of the Wall Street Journal on a plaintiffs firm that sent out some good news/bad news letters to their clients.

I got a kick out of reading this since I used to work for a plaintiffs firm that handled asbestos cases.

I would routinely have to talk to clients who were upset that their x-rays came back negative for asbestosis or silicosis.

One of my former co-workers and I sat down once and came up with a "You might be an asbestos client" list along the lines of Jeff Foxworthy's routine.

One of the lines we came up with was:

"If you've ever gotten mad when someone tells you that you don't have cancer....you might be an asbestos client."
