This post suggests that lawyers do the following to help clients achieve their goals: Understand your clients’ interests. Pay attention to what’s really important in your cases, not just the law or winning. Recognize the importance of emotions – especially yours. Get to know your counterpart lawyer. Make a habit of preparing to resolve matters at the earliest appropriate time. Be prepared to negotiate more than you might expect. Get help from mediators when needed. Be prepared to advocate hard and smart.
