Mitch Jackson

I see young lawyers feel the need to argue even when the tentative ruling is in their favor or, the judge's comments clearly indicate he/she is going to rule in their direction. A good approach is to state to the judge something like, "You honor, unless the court has any additional questions, plaintiff is in agreement with the court's tentative" or "Is there a particular issue area the court would like further comment on?" Less is more in these types of situations.
