Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: 19131
Rating:9.3
Comments:
Does not suffer fools or big city arrogance. Southern gentility hides a very good legal mind and litigator. Runs a tight courtroom which gets the respect of the court staff (once fined himself for being late ...). Wants to get the right answer but also get to an answer without delay.

Southern gentleman with low tolerance for the foolish or self-important. High dollar suit and big firm attitude will not fly. Be polite, be on time and be honest. He will be polite thoughtful and decisive. Do not play games with discovery or waste time with frivolous fluff. Tears and dramatic emotional appeals will not work. Appeal to the law.
Well liked by staff around the court. Remembers everything. Self made man and true gentleman.

What you'll get here is old fashioned "home cookin." Woe be unto you if you or your client are from out of state. Plus, he's as reactionary as they come.
