AH HA!! THe VA COURTS indeed has a wonderful
HERE is the one I wish I had time to fill out.
It would have helped clarify who should be the appellant and appellee.
I also REALLY APPREACHIATE my one attorneys laugh and comment "Why am I not surprised?" or something similar of nature. I took that as a vote of confidence from him in my diligence and being smart enought to be able to procedurally meet deadlines against odds KNOWING THAT I DON't KNOW IT ALL COLD, and also in me being shrewd.
I still maintain being smart can take you further than being detail oriented. In the future I can HIRE an amazing paralegal for details. And when I DO KNOW an area I notice mistakes. But what is more important and hard to either measure or quantify and even place value on is INSTINCT.
Even when I don't know the RIGHT procedure to follow, or the right way to do something, I am almost never wrong when I get that CLEAR INSTINCT that something is not right.
I'm grateful for that internal compass which is hard to even explain. But I have it and it works very well.
There was NO WAY I was going to miss that deadline. I also had to argue with a clerk to take my money for the filing requirement of a $500 bond. The clerk didn't want to but as they were still open I was insistant and then another gentleman helped me. I profusely THANKED HIM!!
