Mostly overcompensating tools. It’s one thing to zealously advocate in a brief, hearing, or argument, especially when the client is present, and some clients don’t like the idea of their attorneys beings “friends” with opposing counsel (which is idiotic because it makes the litigation way more expensive), but all of the best litigators I ever observed or went against had a “leave it on the field” mentality and otherwise were friendly.


Yep this sounds right


There’s a general perception that being an obnoxiously aggressive person is somehow intimidating or effective. I guess it works for some people.

As a chinese fish, I had heard both pos and neg stories around coronavirus. What are your thought on this situation? Have you taken any preventive actions? And which country do you currently work in?
