LEARN WITH A LAWYER - LISTEN TO YOUR LAWYER WHEN THEY SET EXPECTATIONS IN YOUR CASE.
Listen to your lawyer when they set expectations. Although you may not like what they say, you need to listen to them because they know they law, and they know the judges. This is especially true if you have unrealistic expectations such as asking for something the law cannot provide you. Listen to your lawyer, listen to what those expectations may be and this will help you understand what may happen to you at a trial.
