Bennington Housing Authority v. Lake, 2012 VT 82.
In the practice of law there are cases that come to your doorstep mid-process. That is the client has done things a certain way for a long enough time that whether you agree with the steps they have taken or not, you are going to have to defend it in court.
This is why lawyers make the big bucks and what infuriates the public so much. How can you defend your client’s actions, they ask? The answer is we have no choice. The client did what he or she did. Our job is to just put the best face on it and go forward.
