Early in my career I was meeting a client at the Miami Beach Satellite Courthouse to represent him at trial on a traffic ticket. The client was running late and I was ready to ask the judge for a continuance or to pass the case until the end of the docket. The client finally arrived and, fortunately, the case had not yet been called. (I was ultimately able to obtain a dismissal in favor of the client). When he arrived at the courthouse he was calm, looked at me with a serious look, raised his index finger and said “When I am late, I drive slower”. I’ve never forgotten that lesson.
