If my memory serves me correctly you and your wife are lawyers.
Therefore, English is the vehicle of your profession and, whilst I
might question (and even challenge) the basis on which legal fees
are arrived at I would hesitate to challenge the ball of verbal wool
which masquerades as a legal 'brief' or an 'opinion' because, in the
main, such papers are incomprehensible to laymen like myself
which I have always seen as a deliberate ploy to keep your fellow
lawyers in work.
Thankfully, your able contributions to these columns have always
been devoid of such legal gobbledegook and have drawn much-needed
attention to the forgotten Sinclairs of Argyll.
Why weren't you at Guysborough on 9th September, 2000 ? It was
a momentous occasion.
