Small-Town Lawyer Intimidated by Big City
Norm Pattis of the Crime & Federalism blog is a small-town lawyer, but he was visiting Georgetown this week for a seminar on 1983 litigation. While visiting Washington, D.C., Pattis checked out the buildings, impressed with the broad facades of the granite behemoths. In particular he was struck by the imposing structure of the Jones Day building.
"I am not sure whether to admire the audacity," he posts. "Imagine buying a former government building with a view of the Capitol. That is a firm with a blue chip on its shoulder. It probably has a committee to manage issues relating to image and decorum."
