I wanted to share a common theme from the American Bar Association Family Law CLE Conference and describe how that theme plays out differently depending upon the approach taken. Steven Peskind was the first to introduce the theme when he said, “Too few lawyers settle cases early and too many lawyers settle cases too late. Work harder to settle cases early. Settlements are better for the clients.” He also said, “A bad settlement is better than a good verdict.”
