Nice article from Christina Gagnier over at Above the Law on the oft-cited (but oft-slighted) idea of collegiality.
Most attorneys have horror stories about colleagues who are, at best, disagreeable curs. It’s a wide-spread issue and, given the pressures many attorneys face, it’s not shocking.
But it is unfortunate and certainly has its own role in why lawyers tend to be so miserable – Gagnier’s advice, be civil, don’t be a jerk, etc. might be simple, but is important to take to heart.
