After practicing law for some time, it has become abundantly clear that many, if not all, of my non-attorney friends have an overly glamorized vision of what an attorney does for a living. I'm guessing they are basing their view on whatever legal show or courtroom drama movie is popular at the time (which in my case would definitely be Judge Judy). People seem to think that every courtroom appearance includes heartfelt closing arguments, testimony peppered with objections, and the a-ha moment when the glove does not, in fact, fit. While we do sometimes get to have those hearings, there are so many more hearings that are procedural in nature and would never make for good television or movie material. Trust me, nobody would be tuning in to "ICMC : Hennepin County" even if it did star Sam Waterston.
