Bruce Braley: Being A Trial Lawyer Is ‘No Different’ Than Farm Work

In an attempt to shake off the elitist moniker he’s been cultivating, Bruce Braley today told The Des Moines Register that being a lawyer was just like being a farmhand:

“One of my highest honors as a lawyer was being invited into the home of my clients to share a meal. To me, it was no different than putting up hay all day in Poweshiek County and sitting down to dinner at noon with the farm family I was helping that day.”

Good attempt, Bruce Braley, Esq, but client power-lunches are not the same as a family meal after a day on the farm.
