Kenny Rogers sang, “You’ve got to know when to hold them & know when to fold them.” Often times litigants get so caught up in the thrill of litigation that they lose sight of the brass ring. If you have gotten more than you deserve, “you’ve got to know when to walk away and know when to run.” You can’t learn how to play poker from a book….you need to sit at the tables with the pros.
To be a “great” attorney requires the same skill set as a “great” poker player: (S)he must have an Appetite for Controlled Risk, an Ego that hates to lose, advanced intelligence and most importantly Experience. Don’t let any attorney play your poker hand until you gauge weather (s)he has those four personal characteristics.
Before you hire any attorney ask some hard questions…..make certain they have what it takes to win.
Then, after you win….don’t press your luck!
