As an attorney, you likely have a checklist of each element you need to address during an evidentiary hearing in order to prove your burden or issue. Yet, we’ve also all been in trials where the simplest question wasn’t asked that proves venue, or an offer of proof wasn’t requested when the judge denied someone’s motion to enter evidence.

She describes vulnerability as “uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure.” Basically, all those icky feelings you have when you step out of your comfort zone. Yikes!
