Today marks the beginning of my legal career in the bustling town of New Babbage. I acquired a suite of offices in an excellent location from Lord Mureaux. Now begins the process of furnishing the rooms with the necessities of my practice. Of course, the second floor room will be for my more distinguised and entreprenurial of clients….
My lodgings are also excellent. I have taken a row-end brownstone with pleasant views of the waters. My lady’s maid, Bess, is quite pleased with her small room in the attics and has been set to scrubbing the entire from top to bottom before my larger furnishings arrive from London.
I now only hope to become acquainted with the principal people of my new City. Of course Dame Burgess and Sir Wainright provided me with excellent letters of introduction.
Off to the dress-makers. I have in mind a new gown in a beautiful worked blue muslin that will be arriving with my goods from London.

With so much intrigue in town, I can only hope my practice will soon be booming. I would recommend that certain personages make sure their final wishes are recorded in a proper Last Will and Testament….

A solicitor that acts with extreme prejudice by the sound of it…

Yes Tepic dear this type is although the process is not all that different.

Dear gods. The lawyers have arrived. The end is nigh!

((Ah, the inevitable anti-lawyer humor. ;) As a RL lawyer I’m used to it, and agree with most of it too. I’m hoping that having a lawyer in town can add new plots to lots of RPs. After all, juicy fights amongst heirs, illicit mergers, family law quarrels and litigation of all sorts always creates drama! And of course, Grace’s departure from London was under some scandalous circumstances….))
