An effective attorney must be equal parts student and teacher. We are students in that we are constantly learning; learning our clients’ business, learning historical facts about a specific dispute, and learning about existing and new laws that may affect our clients’ end goal. On the other hand, attorneys are teachers in the sense that clients, judges, and juries all look to us to explain both the facts and the laws in such a way that they can easily understand and apply them. It is this balance that leads to a successful case.
