Lawyers appreciate people who treat them with the dignity and respect.
Lawyers appreciate people who recognize lawyer jokes for what they are – a form of bigotry (and who therefore pass on the opportunity to proliferate them).
Basically, I guess this means that lawyers appreciate the same things everybody else does - so whether you are a lawyer or not, may you have the things you appreciate in abundance in 2007.
Note: This is a departure from my usual posts which are directed to Managing Partners and those who assist them in running their firms. This is a "lawyers appreciate" post conceived by Julie Fleming Brown of Life at the Bar and Stephanie West Allen of Idealawg as a way to close out the year with a flurry of appreciation in the legal blogosphere. (I am honoured to have been tapped to do a “Lawyers appreciate" post and to tap three more bloggers to do the same.)
