Settlements, Trials, Zen and The Book of Five Rings
Here’s a great post at the Virginia Injury Lawyer Blog on how to get great settlements. The most important factors are the willingness to work hard, think hard, try cases to verdict, and take risks. In that regard, I am reminded of The Book of Five Rings, a reflection on the zen of individual combat written in 1643 by Miyamoto Musashi, an undefeated samurai sword fighter who wrote that "the Way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death." Knowing that opposing counsel sometimes read this blog, I won’t elaborate further.
