Lawyer


The lawyer hears such stories: clients abused, previous lawyers, health professionals and police threatened. She's there to observe legal rights, not for the tears and confusion, the sudden changes of mind.

A client comes in to sign a document and leaves without doing so. The lawyer is giving instructions to a secretary in another room about another case; the receptionist is left to deal with the emotions.
