"In a small town, you come to know your clients, other parties or counsel on a personal basis. Relationships form that hopefully temper the unnecessary confrontations and outbursts that have grown common when counsel and parties don't know each other. Rambo litigation tactics backfire in small towns unless they are absolutely necessary. One of my strengths as a lawyer is my ability to look at the big picture and determine a good outcome. Then I make a plan and work toward that end."
