A Team Approach
Why Choose Sandpoint Law
We meet weekly to review difficult cases, bringing ALL our experience to each case.
Toby McLaughlin leads the discussion. The responsible attorney outlines every new case. He or she will set out the facts, the legal theory(s), and the case’s strengths and weaknesses. The lawyers around the table will then chime in with comments on strategy or, perhaps, with a relevant Supreme Court holding or legal doctrine that needs to be considered. Except in routine matters, it’s likely the responsible attorney will walk away knowing his case isn’t quite as strong as he thought it was, and he needs to do more work. Or, more happily, she may find that the weaknesses that seemed so daunting at the outset can be overcome with a colleague’s advice.
The lawyers also update on-going cases, especially matters in litigation, always with an eye on seeking the advice of others. In addition, the lawyers will review Supreme Court holdings that bear on the firm’s practice, and legal doctrines and procedures that may prove helpful in the future.
