FROM: Attorney Rita Colletti
No one is more surprised than I am about my decision to leave the practice of law in Houston and move to Lavender in the Texas Hill Country to become a sole practitioner. I came to Lavender initially to handle a matter for a wealthy landowner that I’d done some corporate work for in the past. Then the murder took place, and everything went – as they say – to hell in a handbasket.
There is the problem of staff to consider. I need someone with a brain to do the work while I handle the clients. Imagine my relief when I realized Sabrina Tate – my former paralegal – lived right here in Lavender. She might have told me where she was going when she resigned, but I don’t log in trivial details. Sabrina is the only paralegal I’ve ever had who can not only read my handwriting, but can draft a perfect response to even the most ridiculous accusations from opposing counsel. Maybe I never told her I valued these qualities. I was shocked when she refused in no uncertain terms to work for me in Lavender. She can’t go on forever with her little hobby of trying to write a book, can she?
