Soliciting for beginners

Isaacs,Isaacs,Isaacs and du Point, the solicitor's office on Market Street, has a family tradition of caring for all the needs of their clients from their first investments to their last will and testament. Old man Isaacs, it seems, has been around for more years than anyone can remember. "He's always been there," people will say, as if the old lawyer were a permanent fixture of the town, and with the passing of the title to successive blood relatives, it's almost as if he has. Each successive Isaacs has been so well tutored in the family business it could almost be the same person, only younger.

Until Ms du Point, of course, who took a partnership without so much as knowing how to draft a probate and had to learn the whole business at night school. Even if she wasn't born into the Isaacs family, she's a blood relative now.

Very nice to have this bit of history filling in.

Except that there's only ever been one Isaacs, but after 70 years or so people get suspicious...
