Revealing the Soul of a Soulless Lawyer

HE lives at the law firm, blowing off his wife's dinner parties, not to mention the birth of his son. He finds no satisfaction in his work, but he is trapped by his high salary and partner title.

He disdains everyone lower in the hierarchy: the smarmy $2,400-a-week summer interns, the idealistic associates who want to help poor people on company time, the associates who have the audacity to become pregnant and his incompetent secretary who broke the crystal plaque he received from a client.

He is, in short, a petty, cynical, sexist, miserable, overpaid corporate creep. He is also fictional.
In diesem Artikel der New York Times ist die Rede vom Großkanzlei-Sympathieträger "Anonymous Lawyer", dessen geistiger Vater Jeremy Blachman nun enttarnt wurde.

In Deutschland ist man wohl noch nicht so weit, als dass ein solches Blog auch nur annähernd viel Aufmerksamkeit auf sich ziehen könnte.
