David Schlesinger, an employee rights lawyer for the Minneapolis employment powerhouse law firm of Nichols Kaster published a remembrance of his lawyer father this week in MinnPost.

The punishing expense of civil litigation, the inherent arbitrariness and uncertainty of it (and, thus, the injustices we witness from time to time), the moral ambiguity of it (at times), can be dispiriting for those of us (most of us, I’d say) committed to making a¬†meaningful and positive difference in our work.
