Last week, I received a fax from one of my adversaries that admittedly caught me by surprise:
His clients apparently decided to discontinue their breach of professional services contract action against my client. In truth, I'm not sure what prompted this action on their part; and I may never know the answer.
When my client was sued by this former long standing client of his, it hurt him on a personal level.
He felt betrayed.
Every time I called during this case (which has lasted years), the anxiousness in his voice was palpable.
He was losing sleep.
But when I called my client this week to tell him the good news, here was his response:
"You added 10 years to my life."
In my line of work, it doesn't get much better than that.
