Are you kidding me? I’m an attorney. I live a very circumspect life, a conservative life! It might be boring to other people but I like it. I’ve always had great respect for the law and have never committed a crime or really, any sort of wrongdoing. I founded my law firm twenty-five years ago. Meyers Dade & Schultz LLP is very well respected in the city. We have a great reputation!
Why is this happening? Why are my attorneys receiving threats to their lives? I’m sure they’ve never committed a crime? They couldn’t have. They’d be disbarred. I’m also sure they’ve never done anything wrong or unethical in their lives.
Okay, maybe they’re not the most pleasant of people. Not everybody likes lawyers. Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said, “Let’s kill all the lawyers?” Henry V wasn’t it? Or maybe it was Vlad the Impaler who did kill all the lawyers. But all our attorneys are upstanding citizens. We are all trained in the law. We would never break the law, so I’m sure whoever is sending these disgusting letters is deranged.
Maybe it’s an unhappy client. Maybe . . . well, if it is an unhappy client, why haven’t they sued for malpractice? I just don’t understand what’s happening. Three people have come to me and maybe there are more. Maybe I should talk to some of the other attorneys and staff to see if they’re being threatened? No maybe not. That might not be such a good idea after all.
I’m really stuck. I don’t know who to turn to. We’ve contacted the police and made a report, but unless there’s more to go on, there’s nothing the San Francisco Police Department can do unless we can find out who’s sending these threats.
Maybe I should talk to Julia. Maybe she’d have some good suggestions. I don’t tell this to a lot of people, but I consult my astrologer when I don’t know what else to do. Maybe Julia Bonatti can help. I’m going to call her right now. I’m really desperate. What do you think? Do you think Julia can help me sort this out?
