my reputation because i started as a
00:06
public defender because my father was a
00:07
criminal defense lawyer
00:09
my reputation has always been a criminal
00:10
defense but for a long time now we’ve
00:12
been doing as many
00:13
civil kind of court cases as criminal
00:16
cases
00:17
i developed this interest in and then
00:19
began doing work in the
00:21
these small companies and again small
00:23
companies can be
00:24
anything from a franchise
00:27
to an international company but it’s
00:29
always owned by a family
00:31
families get into fights those fights
00:33
sometimes about wills often end up in
00:35
probate court no one thinks there’s
00:36
trials in probate courts there’s trials
00:38
every day
00:40
well what we’ve begun to do is we work
00:42
with corporate council
00:44
we work with the clients sometimes
00:45
people refer the clients themselves the
00:47
people
00:48
and we sit sort of in the middle of the
00:50
law firms the corporate council law
00:52
firms
00:53
sometimes we work with other you know
00:55
the bigger law firms
00:57
and in great part oftentimes develop
01:00
strategy help develop strategy and work
01:02
with people with the idea towards
01:03
solving the problem
01:05
the blend between civil and criminal
01:06
laws
01:08
criminal lawyers criminal defense
01:10
lawyers maybe understand
01:12
better than anybody that the one thing
01:14
clients want is
01:15
get this problem behind me put the
01:17
problem behind me
01:19
so the idea is in those cases where it’s
01:22
families squabbling often about a
01:24
business that the family’s grown for
01:26
years
01:27
or any other kind of case the goal of
01:29
the lawyer should be
01:31
put this problem behind me so completely
01:34
that there’s not a trace left
