When it comes to lawyers, the more fear they strike, the better your chances are. The only person they should not be doing this too is you. If your lawyer is feared by certain people on the other side, this will actually work in your favor. Fear tactics are sometimes what it takes to win in court. Never discount the notion that your lawyer is a shark.
There should be a good balance actually. The right lawyer will use intimidation tactics to get where he needs to be. This is a plus, depending on the specifics of your case. All I am saying is do not shrug it off. This is a good tool to use, when it’s used in the proper format.
