Not all lawyers are litigators

In response to Michael W. Szkaradek’s letter, “Complying is easier than representing clients,” I agree with his premise that complying with MCLE is not that difficult and should be done. But I do take umbrage when he says: “How can any attorney who is unable to comply with the relatively simple MCLE reporting requirements be expected to understand complex case-related fact patterns or otherwise competently represent clients by complying with the substantially more complex procedural and substantive legal requirements associated with most lawsuits?”

There are a lot of us who never see the inside of a courtroom and really don’t want to, and thus don’t have to worry about the substantive legal requirements associated with most lawsuits. Michael, not all of us are litigators.
