A litigator’s most important skill is the ability to isolate the aspects of a case that really matter from those driven by ego and hurt feelings. I constantly try to focus my time and energy as well as my clients’ precious resources on the true problems at hand and avoid the unnecessary distractions that too often allow the tail to wag the dog.
