Thanks for this, Rick.

Your post "feels" like we agree that good lawyering is about an awareness for when to mute your legal skills and appeal to emotion - stop the analysis, be empathic, be a person, etc.

I wonder if we're making a distinction that won't matter to most non-lawyers -- these are folks who wish more McCoy and less Spock in their lawyers.

We might be doing that. The irony makes me smile.

Take care,

Rick Georges

Yes, we agree. But, I "think" that we need to get the general public to recognize that lawyer's are not just jerks who antagonize, cross-examine and otherwise act like ***holes all the time. Most of us spend our lives defusing arguments, resolving controversy with common sense and courtesy, and generally acting like decent human beings. Thinking like a lawyer, to me, means thinking through problems rationally, and attempting to solve them rationally. Much different than acting like a jerk.
