Summary

My Frenchie takes me for walks on the waterfront. He swerves all over the walkway like a suspected DUI driver. My wife and I go ballroom dancing. I try not to swerve all over the dance floor like a DUI driver.

I am good at reducing complicated things, like the law, to their simple and easy components. Clients like simple and easy choices. Judges like it when the law is clear. Juries like it when your clients actions make sense. Where I grew up in the mountainous Redwoods, people prided themselves on their common sense. Common sense is not something frequently associated with the law. But there is a lot of common sense behind the ideas of the law. Sometimes that common sense got lost in legislative session or somewhere else along the way. When you can re-introduce common sense to the conversation then one can get a great result for your client.
