I was at a lawyer's office recently to get some stuff done and I couldn't help noticing all the files lying around. These are files of their client's cases, all tied individually with a filmsy string and then stacked everywhere. As long as there is an available space on the floor or a table top, chances are very, very good that there'll soon be several files piled up there. This is a sight which is common to almost all, if not all, lawyer firms in the country. One fine day when I come across a lawyer friend, I must ask him why lawyers do this. Is this a tradition or what?
