A tiger team is a known professional method of breaking down a problem into smaller segments to isolate all possible issues; for example, in software engineering, it is common to use tiger teams. In scientific issues and spacecraft (where it kind of originated) it is par for the course.
When difficult family law issues arise, it is basically the same method except science kind of goes to the mental issues, and the remaining problems can be a mix. We don't expect clients to handle the legal issues obviously. Past mistakes or errors in cases are more common in cases where the parties have never solved anything, but continue to battle year after year. After viewing many cases where nothing has seemingly changed over the years for the better, sometimes clients will refuse to do things differently for various reasons.
However, it has been attorney's experience that in breaking down the issues, most attorneys focus only on the legal problems. While that certainly is the course of action for the attorney, many other elements of the case will come into play. Having a wide background of experience in dealing with many types of individuals, attorney has found that certain types of people will focus on certain issues only, while ignoring other problems completely. It has also been noted that ignoring some issues can cut off solutions that may actually exist. This is somewhat difficult to diagnose until one has enough experience in the field, but like a car mechanic, we basically know what to look for. [Attorney is not originally from Butte County, and has been to at least 28 different court houses throughtout California, and Northern, Eastern and Southern Districts, including Federal Courts for Bankruptcy. In animal law cases, we often see issues which deal with federal law, and not just state law.]
A root cause of failure is often due to the parties making decisions
based upon improper assumptions or beliefs.
Particularly because attorney has much experience as defense counsel (and social work experience), this brings an additional element into the case which is often helpful. Many family law attorneys have never been practicing defense attorneys or worked with families who have issues.. There is a difference. And there is a difference in setting up a defense as well.
Clients that have been wrongfully accused of anything will benefit in hiring an attorney who has done defense work, criminal defense and similar situations. It would be similar to hiring an insurance defense attorney, many of whom can be difficult to work with.. LOL and that was the point here?
