Clear communication serves as an essential component of a successful legal strategy. Good attorneys can synthesize all of the facts in a matter and think about them intellectually, but if they can’t clearly explain themselves, their clients suffer. I always strive to express myself with language that gets my point across efficiently and effectively, whether I’m writing a brief, talking with my client or arguing in open court.
