DeMatteo’s Rise

What should I do?

Should I admit law school was a mistake? (It wasn’t.)

Should I remind you that I’ve done this before? (Remember the Boston Collegian and BC Carpetbaggers?)

Should I really have majored in history?

Should I tell you how much I learned in law school?

Should I really believe I’m fighting for people’s rights?

Should I have stayed in Wisconsin?

Want to see my shiny new blog?  Maybe I should just blog and tweet.

Or should I tell you, “I just want to help people” ?

Should I tell you that I’m a degree earner, that I did it for the money, or to put off going to work for three years?  (Hey, an L.L.M. sounds nice.)

Should I practice what you want me to practice?

Should I accept my role as a villain?

Maybe I should just find a new line of work. (Or just focus exclusively on writing legal softcore porno movies. Coming Soon: Well-Hung Jury.)

Should I have sucked-up at my last internship?

Should I try for a job with a white shoe firm? (Probably should have done OCI.)

Should I make you money?

Should I write you a nicely-researched brief?

Should I just scrap this criminal law thing and represent corporations?  (Because it’s not like they’re criminals or anything…)

What should I do?

Should I take the cases you come to me with?

As a writer who’s dabbled in satire, I had to take a shot at the LeBron commercial.  You know, this one:
