There are a few things that all great lawyers and law firms do. These are the same principles that guide the Law Office of James Newell.
First off, great lawyers show their clients, through their words and actions over a period of weeks or years, that they can be trusted to approach every client’s legal issues with the same focus and determination as they would their own. Open communication built on trust is important because only when a lawyer has a sufficiently nuanced understanding of his client’s goals and priorities can he work with that client to determine the best possible course of action.
Great lawyers are experts in their fields of practice. They are smart, critical thinkers, they have an overarching understanding as well as very detailed knowledge of the law, and they have carefully honed their instincts for solving nonstandard legal problems. They know how to apply the law to the facts succinctly without glossing over important details, they know the importance of creating and repeating a central theme that has an intuitive appeal to a judge or jury, they have a healthy respect for the unforgiving nature of many procedural rules and deadlines, and they are adept at wielding the rules of evidence to admit evidence that’s helpful and keep out evidence that’s prejudicial. Great lawyers are confident in their judgment but are quick to look to authoritative primary and secondary sources when particular points of law or fact need to be clarified.
Lastly, great lawyers make the law accessible to their clients. They are aware of their roles as interpreters who must translate the often stilted and obscure verbiage found in statutes and cases into plain English that people without formal legal training can understand.
