Starting on April 23, all the lawyers in the firm ventured to the beautiful estate of Keith and Lynn Kessler in Hoquiam, Washington, for our annual firm retreat. The Kessler residence sits on a bluff looking out over the ocean, with a stairway leading down to a private cove.
We did some work, and learned that some defense lawyers think everything bad that happens is an unavoidable accident.
We played croquet. The rules were all in Keith’s head, and may or may not have changed during the game. It’s house rules.
We ate in Moclips.
And we may have settled a big case or 47.
