‘Certain clients may feel very emotionally invested in their case and he is good at letting them vent and share their thoughts and opinions, and also after that allow the parties to focus on getting to the brass tacks and what the issues are with the case,’ Green said. “Obviously we thought we were right and the other side wasn’t going to budge from their position.
