Trial schedule: set alarm early enough to get to office before 7 to pick up binders and other emergency supplies in time to get to trial location by 7 or so. Work for 2 1/2 hours getting stuff ready. Attend hearing, watch witnesses get destroyed on the stand. Grown men turn fearful before my eyes. And admit to things that are horrible for our opponents.
Discuss how ill the lead lawyer on the other side is. Play songs from the trial-specific play list. Tell our lead lawyer all the awesome admissions he got on cross. Order dinner. Make suggestions for how to deal with a certain witness. Add something to the whiteboard in the war room where you spend all your waking hours outside of the hearing room. Conduct mock cross, harass paralegals.
Work until 2. Or 4. Maybe 5. Cab home, toss clothes in dry cleaning bag, lie down, and hope you can sleep for the few minutes or hours you have. Hope your mind will stop spinning with all the things you have to do and think about just long enough for you to drift off so your brain is slightly more functional the next day.
