I have written about how to hire a business lawyer at times in the past.  My first rule is that the lawyer should be experienced and competent in business law rather than choosing a personal injury, family law, criminal law or other lawyer.  My analogy used to be that you would not want a plastic surgeon operating on your heart.  But I have a new analogy: 

You wouldn’t want a linebacker covering a wide receiver on 2nd and 13, right?

No disrespect to Mike Klinkenborg.  The guy played his heart out.

Congratulations to Matt Gardner – the most faithful Iowa State Cyclone fan I know.
