How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Knowing the local judges and other lawyers and local practice is highly important.

5 minutes to talk, and the client to stay focused on the essential facts so we can determine if I can help them.

Solving a problem for a client who appreciates it and could not solve it on their own.
