There are times when we are getting ready for trial and there seems little time to breathe, and no time to post to this blog. Now is such a time. So if we seem absent – well we are. But I am reminded today of the value of preparation, and the burden it places on us as lawyers.

How much time will it take to really know your case? And how much time will it take to really know your story?

We are nine weeks out from the trial of a case that has consumed two years time, so we are really in the soup. Transcripts and documents and videos and audio files and file paths and more …

So posting new materials will likely fall to Will Young as Courtney and I continue our prep for battle.

Nine weeks. And then another five or six in trial. And then another week or so in “recovery.”

We should be “back to normal” by the middle of August.
