Without Precedent

This chapter focuses on Susie Sharp's return to Reidsville two years later, after she left feeling that she would never make it as a lawyer, especially in a practice with her father. Susie's return would mark a sea change, however. Apparently having made up her mind that her place was in the Sharp & Sharp office, Susie caught hold swiftly—beginning a trajectory as a general practice lawyer that would carry her to a solid position in the Rockingham County bar. Clients continued to come to see Mr. Jim, not Miss Susie, but it was not always easy to find Mr. Jim, for he wanted to be out and about, politicking or farming on the land he had long since acquired not far from town. He often left Susie to take care of the office, and emphasized at every opportunity that clients should entrust their business to her. On one occasion, he chastized an insurance claim adjuster who had come to the office but left without accomplishing anything because Mr. Sharp was out.
