Deadlines are important in my line of work. Every document that comes in the front door is reviewed by the receptionist to determine whether it contains any deadlines. If it does, then a copy of the document goes to our calendaring paralegal, who enters the deadline(s) on the firm's electronic calendar. The original document goes to the appropriate attorney's secretary, who puts it on her calendar, then she gives the document to the attorney, who places the deadline(s) on the paper calendar that our malpractice insurance carrier requires each attorney to keep in addition to the electronic calendar. Most days, I am trying to meet a deadline or two. Of course, this being the law, there is occasionally a loophole. Sometimes you can ask opposing counsel and/or the court for an extension of time. I couldn't make the deadline for getting my questions to Dr. April, so now Dr. April isn't going to appear until May. But it's okay, the judge approved my motion for extension of time to publish the Dr. April post. Stay tuned.
