A Trial Lawyer’s Playbook.
When one football team goes up against another, both the teams may be very evenly matched on paper. What tips the balance in favor of one team over another?
A good coach will consider factors beyond the team’s wins and losses.
- Where is the game being played, is your team the home or away team?
- What are the weather factors, the wind direction that will affect the kicker?
- Have you watched the scouting report video, and do you have an injury report on the other team?
It’s about the will to prepare
Seasoned, exceptional trial lawyers know that there are more than just a few factors in determining the outcome of a case. Having the facts and the law on your side is great, but may not win the day. A well-known attorney once said to me “litigation is not unlike a battle and only the best generals can cut through the fog of war.”
In the law, the facts of a case are the basis for bringing a lawsuit. But a good trial lawyer, like the coach, knows it’s much more. It’s about the will to prepare.
