A glimpse inside the court room

For me, being in a courtroom is much like being on a playing field. There is the opposition. There are rules. Hours of practice lead up to a critical moment in the game. The goal is to win. 

Clients are often nervous upon entering a courtroom. This is understandable as they have a great deal at stake. I appreciate and respect the trust they place in me when the ask that I be their attorney. And truth be told, there are still times when I get nervous. 

One such time is when we wait for the judge to render their decison in a domestic violence trial. Sitting their as the decison is read is gut wrenching.  In a recent trial I allowed myself to relax a bit only after the judge started quoting portions of my closing argument in his decison!  

I get nervouse because I care about my clients. If your attorney tells you they never get nervouse, you may need to find a new attorney. One who cares.
