The ‘I Love Me’ Wall

Today begins week three of my new job as an associate at Plaxen & Adler, P.A. So far, I've brought very little of my old office with me -- my Levenger editor's desk (which I bought about 10 years ago), a three-tiered inbox (coincidentally, from Levenger), and my Bluebook. I dumped all of my bar journals, figuring that if I haven't referred to them yet, I don't need them now. My new strategy for bar journals is to look over them instantly, scan in any good articles, and maintain a database so I can refer back to the good ones. A hard drive is a good way to avoid clutter. And, that's my theory for arranging my office -- less clutter.  I'm always looking for ways to be more efficient.  I'm trying to avoid piles on the floor, messy desk drawers, and redwells full of "stuff to read." But, does my quest for a spartan office go to far?


  1. Been practicing 15 years and I have not yet framed any of my diplomas/admission certificates.

  2. Same John, can’t remember the last time I looked at them.

  3. I don’t know if I can necessarily agree with your logic. I have my diplomas framed in my office. The way that I look at it, those diplomas are the most expensive artwork I’ll ever own in my entire life.
