The qualities of a good lawyer, I think, are a certain core competency to begin with; that is that they’re smart enough, have enough intellectual horsepower to do the job. But beyond that it’s being, I think, perseverant, determined, and I think lawyers particularly have to be eclectic in their views and have to know how the world works in a number of different areas to describe those things to the jury.

You should consider the kinds of factors I just had to explain to a family of an injured person at HCMC today. They want someone who’s – you want someone who’s done the type of work that needs to be done; in this case it was a catastrophic injury; that’s dealt with the sophisticated medical problems, and can understand and explain those; that’s dealt with the various insurance problems and can understand and explain those; and prosecute what you want done, and who understands and can explain both, the liability, that is who’s at fault and why they’re at fault, as well as the damages, and in catastrophic injury cases that’s very important, because you have to be able to explain to a jury or to an adjuster how they really have to feel this person’s pain, which is hard to do.
