This was the pretty view out the window that greeted me this morning as I went in for a job downtown:
What I really appreciated about this job is that the counsel member actually handed me a sheet of paper with about 10-12 proper names all lined up once she came into the room and sat down. Wow! That is the first time that that has happened and I can’t tell you as a stenographer how useful that piece of paper with names on it is. It ensures that even before I start the job, I already have a handling of what the job will be about and be able to J-define the entries into my dictionary before starting. It ensures that after the job, I don’t have to spend time hunting the counsel down for spellings. It also makes for a cleaner transcript than ever before! Briefs really do make a difference and I loved that this counsel member knew enough to give me a sheet of names!
