Dan has more feathers in his hat than Sitting Bull, all well-deserved. Do NOT torture yourself writing a brief or responding to a motion, especially in a case (most cases?) where you are too “close” to the record to objectively assess what are the important issues you can win with vs. other “really interesting” issues, or worse still, continuing a fight with a defense attorney you really detest.
Let Dan handle it, then go home, watch the Phillies and relax. I’m sure your only regret will be that you did not use Dan on prior matters.
