Yes, I have already disclosed these things. I would just like to make the case that being in such a position could prove useful later in service of others' need for defense in court, not for competence, but for the ability to understand, relate with, and appeal to future clients.
But yeah, I could see how emphasizing this one thing could be viewed as a generic 'cover-my-ass/tie my loose-ends about my mistakes' kind of ploy, which sucks because that's not true...but how do you know if you don't know me?
It would not be as powerful as emphasizing strengths I've acquired than to seem to erase weaknesses. I think this'll be my new strategy, but if you care to share any other thoughts, they're more than welcome. Thanks for the input, both of you.
