What is Brad’s philosophy of legal practice?

Coppice-MirrorA competent attorney’s labor consists primarily in negotiating workable compromises and drafting conflict-avoiding language.  Human conflicts portend not only dangers, but also promise.  Conflict, well-managed and honestly-brokered, precedes needed change in people, relationships, and institutions.  Persistent human conflicts should be managed in private forums, with the assistance of persons possessed of substantial interpersonal skills.  Emotions matter at least as much as issues and facts in resolving human disputes.  Courts exist to end intractable conflicts and should be the forum of last resort.  Litigation benefits no one except attorneys.  Litigated solutions necessarily involve coercion, forcing unchosen change on unwilling participants.  The results dismay.  When litigation cannot be avoided, courtesy and candor must temper advocacy.  Ethical probity and personal trustworthiness are the essence of practicing law.
