TORT TALK PRACTICE TIP


LOOK AHEAD

Periodically look ahead on your calendar 30-45 days to see what’s coming down the pike.  Lawyers hate surprises; clients hate them more. 

By repeatedly looking ahead you may be lucky enough to never again experience that awful feeling in the pit of your stomach that comes when you forgot to tell a client about tomorrow’s settlement conference with the court.

Looking ahead on your calendar also allows you to get a jump start on that motion or brief that may be due 30 days or so down the line.  Having more time to write means having more time to research and edit, and re-edit, which guarantees a better final product that covers all of the applicable law and argument.
