THINK LIKE A LAWYERS; DON’T ACT LIKE ONE
Lawyers can be real spoilsports. They tend to seek safety, they’re worrywarts: they see pitalls everywhere. They even see them on the road. What they don’t see is that one simply drives by the vast majority of pitfalls—without seeing or being seen by them. It also happens that a lawyer might be more interested in showing his intellect and professional competence than in getting in breakthrough in your case. This doesn’t help you much. So, when you hire a lawyer, make sure you’ve got the kind of lawyer you need. If you get one who focuses only on the legal case, and ignores the person you’re having a dispute with then there is a good chance that the conflict will escalate. A spoilsport can spoil your chances of a good outcome.
