PREPARING THE CLIENT WITH AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THEY NEED

Try to see it my way
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong
While you see it your way
There’s a chance that we may fall apart before too long
We can work it out
We can work it out

Paul McCartney, John Lennon

As lawyers we have spent many years focused on learning the law, the rules of evidence, and the way to most effectively present a case to obtain the outcome sought by our clients, and really it is the outcome that we tell our clients they should be seeking. The client’s role in all of this is very periphery other than that they give us the bare bones of the story of their lives and what has happened to them that has led them to our offices in the first place. After that, we as lawyers, and not just lawyers but litigators, work our magic. We turn that story into something that fits within the parameters of the law so that compensation can be obtained for our client. We work our magic on the facts and the evidence so that it fits within a compelling theme that we have worked hours to develop. We focus group the facts so that we know exactly what will be the most compelling to the jury and we work with jury consultants to make sure that our client’s are focusing on the right things, that we tell our client’s story in a way that is compelling and motivating to the jury. We cull our witnesses so that they tell the story that our research and our expert trial consultant have told us will make our case a winning case. All of this is part of our craft, part of the work that we put into doing the very best possible in every case, part of the expertise that we bring to the table and in many ways the groundwork for the skill that we as trial lawyers are hired to provide for our clients. But, where does the client fit into this? After all, is it not their case? Their story? Their loss?
