a first

For the first time in my legal career, I got up in the middle of a hearing and offered to help a pro se (unrepresented) debtor in order to keep her from digging herself further into a very deep, dark hole. She was setting herself up to get her discharge revoked and maybe even a criminal charge. All because she is trying to protect someone who doesn’t deserve it.

It will probably end up biting me in the ass, but I still feel like it was the right thing to do.

We had a chat, and she hugged me before she left. I told her I’d call her on Monday to figure things out. I hope she actually follows my advice.
