FUTURE ENDEAVORS FOR BUSINESS AND SELF PLANNING AND REGROUPING

January signals the end of the previous year and the start of the new one. Many people are busy beginning to plan and regroup by setting goals to find out where they need to go from this point. Goal setting, both for my business and myself, is one of the most significant parts of my life and key to my success. Every year, I sit down and review last year’s failures and achievements, considering what I did really well and where I need to improve. I start developing a course of action for the next year that I can follow and accomplish. The key is not to just write something down, never to look at it until the following year. You need to read it every month to check your progress. This is a process I use when I’m setting goals for the business and myself. In order to continue to achieve success in my business, everyone on my team, including me, needs to continuously learn, grow, and develop. We do this to ensure we have the cutting-edge techniques we need to effectively handle cases and trials. It’s vital for us to review this every year and create a plan of action to continue to learn

and consult together on ways we can improve. In my experience, it’s a great thing to zero in on and is invaluable to our success. One aspect we’ll focus on this year is to continue mastering high-level trials, especially by communicating effectively with the jury and judges. We want to focus on the way our words, techniques, and demonstrative aids can help us support our clients with their cases. Nowadays, you can’t walk into court and just talk to a jury like you see in old “Matlock” shows. The jurors almost demand to have a more pseudo- Hollywood experience inside the court. Jurors who’ve watched shows such as “CSI” have come to want and expect in a real trial the things they see on screen. None of what is shown on those shows is realistic, but we do have advanced technology and demonstrative aids that bring the story to life. It’s thanks to these tools that jurors can understand certain situations in a case much better than if someone were to just explain it. We make certain to train and stay up-to-date on the services needed to provide our clients with crucial trial technology

and techniques. We’re continually on the lookout for the latest strategies and brainstorming helpful ways to incorporate them into each of our cases. While my work takes up a lot of my attention, I also want to make sure I have enough time for my family. I’m passionate about my work and my clients. It’s imperative that I maintain relationships with them. However, I also want to ensure that I’m always there for my family when they need me. A personal goal that means a great deal to me is to make sure that I’m home for my wife and daughter. I want to be there for them, spend quality time with them, and be involved in Addy’s life along with the activities she enjoys doing. My plan is to start working a little less on the computer in the evenings when I’m at home. I want to try and cut down on that this year and focus on being a little more present when I come home from work during the week. I’m someone who can worry about a case 24/7, so carving a few hours out of that time spent stressing to focus solely on my family will be a great thing for me. This goal is truly important to me as a father, husband, and an attorney, and I invite you to have a similar ambition for the new year.

“I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT MY WORK AND MY CLIENTS. IT’S IMPERATIVE THAT I MAINTAIN RELATIONSHIPS WITH THEM. HOWEVER, I ALSO WANT TO ENSURE THAT I’M ALWAYS THERE FOR MY FAMILY WHEN THEY NEED ME.”
