- By Paul J Zwier. Published by National Institute for Trial Advocacy. 2005. 1st edition.
"In Legal Strategy, well-known professor, Paul J. Zwier focuses on pre-litigation, transactional, and negotiation processes, and describes each in a way that brings together the basics of each discipline. Zwier describes how, once a lawyer determines the end goal the client desires, the lawyer must explore the facts and procedural alternatives most likely to get there. By getting lawyers to focus in a continual exercise of deliberating on what matters most, Zwier sets forth three steps in legal strategy: fact investigation, client counseling, and implementations of the client's decision." - from the publisher
