Something I became aware of through the years of dealing with a lawyer was the power of the lawyer's personal contacts with opposing counsel. This is something that the lawyer gains through the years of practicing law. When a lawyer can pick up the phone and have a conversation with opposing counsel it can often lead to resolution and insight into some issues.
