Trial junkies and plea junkies

Matt Brown in Arizona and Scott Greenfield in NY discuss trial and plea lawyers: some lawyers thrive on the adrenaline of trials, and others are terrified of trials and work hard to avoid them.  Greenfield points out that attorneys who brag about trying a ridiculous number of cases each year are not doing their clients any favors – quality trumps quantity.

From Matt Brown: “Fear can lead to injustice, and that fear just as often comes from the lawyer as it does from the defendant.”
