Boot Camp, Esq.

Ask Allison

Allison Jackson Mathis

Dear Allison,

What would be your advice in this “me too” era to us older, perhaps coarser, members of the profession? Those of us “good old boys” who, truly, mean no offense? Should we stay away from all female attorneys, especially the young? Leave doors unopened? Shove off of elevators first? Make no eye contact with anyone born after 1970? How does one prevent being accused of harassment or assault when one is merely trying to show deference and respect to the fairer sex?

Yours,

Crusty Codger
