How to Deal with the Rambo Litigator
Courtroom practices and procedures are the antithesis of what have become known as “Rambo” tactics. Aggressive, abusive, outrageous and uncivil litigation practices will most likely result in sanctions against the attorney by the Court, Bar grievances, an undesirable reputation in the legal community, and ironically, a decrease in the likelihood of prevailing on behalf of your client. What looks good on the silver screen, is not necessarily appropriate in litigation be it in civil, domestic or criminal. Professionalism is required. This program will discuss what is appropriate and effective in the courtroom, as well as what is not.
