New York Lawyer

I had a friend from college whose father was a New York lawyer for malpractice cases. He was quite a scrappy man with a thick Brooklyn accent and a semi-permanent suspicious look in his eyes. When he shook off the trappings of a New York Lawyer, he was actually rather personable--he would make jokes about "the old college try;" he would wander around my friend's house in geeky dadish clothing; once in a while, he'd even let you win an argument. When it came to the Yankees games, however, the New York lawyer poker face returned and people scattered when he strode into a room gesturing with his hands and sweating.
