When I was a very young lawyer in the first year or so of being employed as a lawyer, my employer instructed me to serve a subpoena on the president of the bank. The bank was his chief employer. I was not courageous at the time. I did not question why my employer would want to subpoena the president of the bank who was his chief employer.
It was a cold winter night. I was parked slightly in back of the driveway of the bank president's house in Highland Park. In order to keep warm I would turn the engine of the car on and off. As time went on, and as I was becoming colder, I began to hate the s.o.b. on whom I would have to serve the subpoena. On the other hand, my good friend, the late Harold McKenney, of Crystal Lake, used to say, "Don't confuse me with my client."
