very fitting.

August 26, 2010

Commenting on the importance of speaking clearly and listening closely, Phillip Roth memorably quipped, “The English language is a form of communication! … Words aren’t only bombs and bullets—no, they’re little gifts, containing meanings!” What is true in love is equally true at law: Lawyers and their clients need to communicate clearly and effectively with one another to ensure that litigation proceeds efficiently. When communication between counsel and client breaks down, conversation becomes “just crossfire,” and there are usually casualties.

— Judge Scheindlin

Did this just make it clear to anyone else that Barber and I need to open a joint Communication/Law consulting firm?
