“So many in my profession sugarcoat the nature of our work. I won’t. I can’t. It does my clients a disservice. Conflict is unavoidable. By first admitting the obvious and then, by being skilled and tenacious enough to do the hard work to see our clients prevail, we are at our highest and best use.”
