Another Set of Eyes and Ears

When you are work in a large firm, there is always another attorney or two with whom you can check your impressions or judgment about a case, and get some additional strategy ideas. If you are a solo practitioner or in a quite small firm, you often have to proceed without those eyes and ears. I was recently asked to write a brief on a possible instance of judicial bias. I was given the transcript of what was said at trial to review by the attorney of record. I was able to not only confirm her hearing of the implications of what the judge had said, but also to write up a concise motion for the judge to recuse herself, enabling the attorney to continue her busy week of client meetings and court appearances.
