James A. Grayer, co-hiring partner with Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel, writes: I am sometimes asked if I get nervous running a board meeting, asking an important client a difficult question or disagreeing with a more senior partner. My response is, not really. I have been practicing law now for almost 20 years, but when I stop to think about what really got me over my nervousness, it's the pro bono work I have done, particularly the year I spent assisting low income individuals living with HIV.
