FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear fellow members of the Charleston County Bar:

A recent cartoon in The New Yorker is of two elderly men in jacket and tie, sitting in a bar.  One says to the other:  "And another thing.  When they start telling you 'You've still got it,' you don't."

When does that time come for a lawyer?  When have we reached the point of not having "it" anymore?  Do lawyers retire?  Is it our nature to just get the gold watch and walk away from a profession after years of practice?

I was recently talking to a friend, who has practiced law in Richland County for 25 years.  Returning from a visit out West, as the plane returned to Columbia and banked over the city, he looked down and he saw his office.  He realized that he didn't want to return to work the next day.  He lost his spark.  Practicing law no longer interested him.  It was time to do something else.

He wrestled with his decision over the next few weeks.  Finally he made his decision and made arrangements with his partners to buy his share.  He was finished practicing law.  His decision shocked me:  he is a fine, ethical, hardworking trial lawyer, and he is my age!

When I asked him what he planned to do, he told me that after he sold his house he was going to move to the mountains and buy a place there.  I asked him how he would fill up his day.  He told me that a friend of his had a part-time job delivering for a florist in town and maybe he could get a spot there.  What a jump:  from the law office, to the mountains, to part-time deliveryman.

I got off the phone and sat and looked out the window for a few minutes.  I admired my friend's courage and realized that he had done what few lawyers ever do and that is retire from the practice of law.  Our profession encourages longevity.  Interest and participation at various levels in different aspects of the law can be enjoyed well past the age when most people retire.  Still his decision made me pause.

Looking back over the years that I have practiced there are only a few lawyers that I know of who have retired completely from their practice.  It seems that most lawyers enjoy an active practice many years past the time when people normally retire.  Senior members of the Bar tell me that it is still pleasant to go to the office, to be involved in a few cases, and to stay active with their clients.

I often wonder if the tendency not to retire will continue with my generation.  Will we die at our desks?  Will it be enjoyable to continue practicing into our 60's and 70's?  Will the pace of practice and the size of the Bar change the ability of senior lawyers to be involved?

For myself I wonder when that day will come when I no longer want to climb the steps to my office.  Will I have the courage to step into something else, to be stimulated, to be engaged?

They say that the law is a jealous mistress.  Because of that jealousy, lawyers often fail to develop outside interests that will sustain them once they leave the practice.  A lawyer I know who is in his 70s, healthy, engaged, and has an excellent practice told me that he enjoys coming to work each and every day.  He said the last thing he would want to do is to sit at home and wait for the mailman to arrive.

I suppose the day does come for all of us brought about by different factors when we will no longer desire to climb the stairs to the office.  Hopefully at that time we will have maintained those interests outside the law which will stimulate us, keep us engaged in the community and perhaps even help us find that extra spot on the florist's truck somewhere in western North Carolina.

Sincerely,
Francis X. McCann

MEDICAL LEGAL GUIDELINES

Almost 20 years ago the Charleston County Bar Association and the Charleston County Medical Society jointly drafted and adopted guidelines for medical-legal fees and for cooperation between the medical and legal professions.  Over the years the suggested medical-legal fee scheduled has been revised several times, most recently in October 2000.  After almost five years the guidelines have again been revised after review by joint committees from the Charleston County Medical Society and the Charleston County Bar Association.  By agreement of the Bar Association and the Medical Society, suggested medical-legal fees for the physician's review of medical records with a narrative report, deposition and trial testimony were all raised $100.  The newly approved suggested fee guidelines are posted on the Bar Association website in PDF format.

Both the Bar Association and the Medical Society are in the process of revising the guidelines for cooperation between the Charleston County Bar Association and the Charleston County Medical Society.  The guidelines for cooperation provide instructions outlining a physician's and attorney's duties with regard to handling medical records, depositions and the physician's testimony.  After the revisions are complete and approved by the Bar Association and Medical Society, copies of the Guidelines for Cooperation between the Bar Association and Medical Society will be made available through the Bar Association's website.

RESPONSE TO LETER FROM THE PRESIDENT, SUMMER 2005

July 26, 2005

Francis X. McCann, Esquire
66 Hassell Street
Charleston, SC 29401

Re:  Letter from the President, Summer, 2005

Dear Frank:

In your Letter from the President published in the summer, 2005 bar association newsletter, you wrote that you "struggle" with identifying the reasons for that loss of respect and attempt to determine what legitimate remedies exist for reclaiming the good reputation that lawyers once enjoyed."  As perspicacious as you are, I can only conclude from your letter that apparently you have not opened up the yellow pages or watched TV in quite some time.  So, please allow me to put an end to your struggle.  The reason why lawyers are held in such contempt by the public is that daily lawyers ask the public to hold them in ridicule, scorn and disrespect.  Lawyers advertising has turned our profession into a business and the public is justifiably reacting to this breach of trust.  Personal greed has hijacked our nation's civil justice system.  While you toil with integrity in relative obscurity, others on TV are making a mockery of what you do.

Sincerely yours,
Jay T. Gouldon
