A litigation attorney has argued it in front of juries, he’s listened to judges and juries comment about the language that’s been used in various litigation regarding contracts and so he’s much more sensitive to, “all right, if this gets into a dispute, does this really say what is on the minds of these people or is it something that came out of a book that sounds great?”
Eric Lanigan with Lanigan and Lanigan attorneys in Winter Park Florida talks about hiring an attorney who has the legal background to give your case the knowledge to litigate your case. Does your attorney have your case experience? You’d better find out before you hire a lawyer.
The reality is, you see the ads that say, “I’ll fight for you,” but the bottom line is you want a litigator who’s a good negotiator; so by definition, they know how to negotiate. And you want them to write that contract because they’ve been to court.
