I find myself repeatedly advising
00:06
clients when I meet them that the most
00:09
important factor in a successful
00:11
relationship and in successfully dealing
00:14
with whatever issue they have before
00:15
them is communication and it’s to
00:18
develop all of the facts that may apply
00:21
to a particular scenario while lawyers
00:25
like to believe that they are the most
00:26
important component in dealing with a
00:29
legal issue and they are certainly
00:31
important it’s the facts of the case
00:33
that oftentimes are the determining
00:36
factors so marshaling those facts
00:39
working hard to learn the entire scope
00:43
of those facts and then organizing them
00:46
so that you can retrieve them at the
00:48
appropriate time whether it’s at a trial
00:49
at a deposition or even in negotiations
00:52
is critical and that can only be done
00:55
when when the relationship between the
00:57
attorney and the client is is strong and
00:59
they and they and they work hard
01:01
together so a client as an obligation
01:04
has some accountability to make sure
01:07
that they respond to their lawyer to
01:09
give them everything that they need and
01:11
certainly the lawyers responsibility to
01:13
communicate how important all these
01:15
various aspects are what facts might be
01:17
important and then to really organize
01:20
them and go through them in detail so
01:23
they can really put them in context for
01:26
the particular situation
01:32
I’ve been an attorney for nearly 40
01:36
years at this point and it has mostly
01:39
been in the civil arena my experience
01:42
has been in representing families and in
01:47
representing individuals and closely
01:49
held businesses in a variety of matters
01:52
at times as I mentioned at the formation
01:55
stage but really over time it’s as they
01:58
have faced critical junctures whether
02:00
it’s a succession plan the death of a
02:02
partner the death of a parent in which a
02:05
business has to be passed on and
02:07
sometimes unfortunately disputes among
02:10
siblings which are which is very very
02:12
difficult and those relationship
02:14
problems are oftentimes the most
02:17
difficult ones to try to resolve I was
02:24
an athlete growing up and I enjoyed
02:26
competing and I did it through high
02:29
school through college in the context of
02:32
my practice I’m involved in litigation
02:33
and I find that oftentimes our firm our
02:37
is up against you know much larger firms
02:40
and sometimes more resources on the
02:43
other side and so it’s the competitive
02:45
fire the competitive urge the desire to
02:49
want to win that I think has
02:52
particularly been helpful to me whether
02:54
trying the case or at the appellate
02:57
level minoan any endeavor to want to try
03:01
to get the very best result that’s
03:03
that’s possible for for my client
